So here is my entry for this week. This is our neighborhood Red Shouldered Hawk. He has nested with his wife in a tree across the street. I am sure pretty soon we will be seeing all the babies learning to fly. Two Sunday's ago, my husband and I were out in the yard and we saw the hawk sitting in the middle of our back yard. I ran and grabbed my camera and slowly moved towards the hawk (very slowly) and sat on the ground about 20 feet from him. When I took this shot he flew by me at about ten feet away from me and about four or five feet off the ground. He is absolutely spectacular to watch. What is even more incredible about this shot and you can't see (because I cropped it out) is that Mr. Daddy Hawk is going back to the nest with lunch. Like in the movie the Lion King.......its the Circle of Life I guess.
