During a typically cold, windy, gray, San Francisco day in August, this Sharp-shinned Hawk was seen perched on first one and then another rooftop ledge, scouring the gardens and trees below in one of few remaining courtyards in the City.
The hawk remained over the courtyard for quite awhile. The bird's waiting game was not without danger. With attention on the gardens and trees below, looking to make a meal out of a small bird, the hawk is exposed to attack by a larger bird of prey.
