While hiking on Strawberry Hill, an island in the middle of Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park, we spotted this red tail hawk thanks to some other photographers who had tripods set up.  Mama hawk was a high in a tree about 50 feet away from her nest, possibly to distract a particularly obnoxious jay who kept taunting her away from her babies.

This photo is a little blurrier than I had hoped, but it was taken at full length without a tripod.
