Our house is located in a semi rural area of los angeles and the house itself back up to the thousands of acres that are the Los Angeles Forest. Occasionally I find awesome bits of nature here and there that make their way into my studio for inspiration. This past weekend I was wandering the property watering plants and I came across a bird feather…and then another one and then I looked around and on the other side of the fence of the water tower next door was most of the feathers from a hawk. It’s sad that the hawk prolly did not survive his run in with a coyote or fox but I was happy to pick up all the feathers from the ground.
While wandering the open side yard of the water tower I also came across this great owl pellet. I picked up all the little pieces into a jar for safe keeping.
