While returning home from Dads and about 3 blocks away from our
house I spied a hawk spiraling in a tight circle close to home.
When I arrived home and jumped out of the car for a look, it was
gone. Or so I thought.
Turned out the hawk settled in a tree not 30 yards from the
back door. The hawk seemed calm so I got closer and took another
shot. The bird was still calm so a few shots were taken before
venturing even closer.
The hawk stayed in the tree quite a while watching me watching
him. Which cause me to wonder, what does a predatory bird with a
4 foot wingspan eat? Surely not people? Yet I got the feeling
the bird was hungry and sizing me up.
Turned out I had no worries as the hawk took flight to find
prey elsewhere. And out of all that I got lucky enough to get
a few good shots of our neighborhood predator. When I finish
this it will be research time to see if hawks get hungry, or
mad enough, to attack people. As always, you can click on the
pictures to enlarge them if you wish.
Hope today was lucky for you also. Enjoy our Tuesday. Now for
some coffee and a Snicker’s.
