|American Tree Sparrow|
Not only did the towhee put on a show but so did a number of raptors. There was a red-tailed Hawk eating its prey which was probably a rabbit. And it included a disagreement with another red tailed Hawk, who also wanted the prey.
There were a number of Harriers searching over the meadow along with at least three short-eared owls. The owls and raptors could be observed from the side of the road leading up to the refuge parking lot and also from the parking lot. I did most of my photography from the side of the road, due to the fact that the sun was right behind me and gave me the best light.
