Spring arrives

Suddenly the mesquites are putting out these green shoots. They were all quite bare from the frost. Saw a Cooper’s Hawk in the eucalyptus, and a probable Redtailed-Hawk in a tree in the wash. It must have been in transitional plumage; scalloped back, white through with red strip up the middle. In flight, notched tail, white patches on back of wing.
