City of Angels?

I’m not sure about the angels, but I can tell you we found something else with wings: birds. This watering hole in Griffith Park seemed to be the life of the party:

You couldn’t take your eyes off it for a second or you’d miss something:

I couldn’t keep up with this Allen’s Hummingbird:

There he is again!

Then I realized he wasn’t alone:

Birds of a feather flock together:

And it turns out, bathe together:

Almost always found in lively flocks, Bushtits move constantly.

If you get a little lonesome, all you have to do is call your friends:

And pretty soon you won’t be alone anymore:

There were big birds too. This stunning Cooper’s Hawk posed for a long time:

And this Red-tailed Hawk was intent on hunting:

We even saw a baby, any guesses as to what he is? You should have seen him run!
