On this rainy Thursday afternoon, Sadie and I ventured forth on the Riverwalk. We had gone only a short distance when I saw a hawk fly on to a light pole and sit there. We approached slowly, and I got some photos of this hawk as it surveyed the surroundings for an afternoon morsel. As we continued on in the drizzling rain, I saw some songbirds including cardinals, robins, chickadees and sparrows. There were few people on the Riverwalk (we passed only two young boys walking in the opposite direction), but nature was plentiful. Though a wet afternoon on the trail, it was rather pleasant, and seeing the hawk made the effort more rewarding. It was a good afternoon on the Riverwalk trail.
