Today there were a couple of hawks hanging out in the back yard. Unfortunately I’m still taking pics with the crappy cellphone camera, but wanted to share one of the better pics. This particular one stayed in the yard for quite a bit, alternating between the ground, and sitting top of the fence around our neighbor’s garden. I think they have a nest nearby though, because I do often hear them when I’m outside, even if I can’t see them.
Hawks are one of my favorite birds, so it was a real treat to see them up close like this. Especially since at best, they are usually just flying by over head, or seen in passing as we are out driving.
