tree year project 2011, #10

It seems about once a year (07/20/10 and 10/04/09) I'm able to get a picture of a red-shouldered hawk on this Douglas-fir. This time it's for The Tree Year project. In the past 2 weeks, city workers have been tidying up the park below our balcony. The pride of Madeira has been trimmed within an inch of its life. I'll be curious to see how it blooms next year. At the very least it'll help the red-shouldered to spot a snack on the ground.
