I've seen a hawk perched up high in a declining oak in the early morning for some time. The tree is below our big parking lot (at work), but gives him/her a great view of the meadows in the morning. It's one of our red-shouldered hawks - we have two pairs, I think, at the Garden where I work.
Today I had my camera, so was able to 'see' a bit closer.
A mockingbird was singing nearby.
And persimmons were ripe and ready to eat.
