Neighborhood Wildlife.

In the event that I haven't pointed out the inherent contradictions of life in a desert metropolis enough, one more example today.

On the way back from my run I rounded the block to my house and startled a small falcon, resting in the shade of a Mercedes SUV parked outside a large villa. The bird didn't fly off, but took a few steps back from me and ducked under the car. We looked at each other for a moment, and then I figured it was best to leave it be and continue on home.
