And then there were none

I spotted this hawk in a tree at Marine Heights, pulled over for a photo. After a shot or two the hawk started to squawk, but not at me. As seen in this sequence of photos, the hawk on the limb was “strafed” several times by another hawk, who never quite found a landing spot. After the third or fourth pass by the interloper, my subject decided to exit the scene. And then there were none…

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
