Yup, sure did. It was 36°F this morning and not set to break 51°F today, but should be back in the 70's tomorrow.

Guess it's a bit colder up your way.

Okay, I've seen them on Discovery Channel. Just couldn't figure out what it was. Do they taste good? ;)

Is that last one what we used to call a Mexican eagle -- caracara or something like that?

Yup, it sure is.

For some reason I couldn't get a good focus on it, must have took 50 pics and none were crisp :duh:

Haven't seen one of them in quite a while.

Too bad about the focus frustration.

The last bird is officially called a Crested Caracara, and of course the first is a Turkey Vulture.

This was on the news last night. I thought it was cool. A webcam on a falcon nest in downtown SF.
