Hawk Fail

Yet another bad air day
Air was terrible again this morning.  Willow, Frio and I did our usual hike, and, again, I was trying to get a decent long-range photo of the Swainson's Hawk who seems often to occupy the same perch.  The disappointing results are posted here.

Heelers were very good today, although somewhat pully when they caught scent of desert critters.  But I was able to call them off fairly easily.

They were also well behaved during the drive home, not snarling or barking at other dogs who were walking their people in the neighborhoods.
