We went out on Tuesday to see about one of our clocks getting worked on and took a different way home. One interesting tree (will share more later on this one) and some cool ferns (later for this as well) made the day even more fun for me. We decided that if we saw a hawk on the way home the day would be complete. As soon as we entered our neighborhood, lo and behold, there was a hawk up in one of the trees. Sitting tall in a Tulip Poplar was a Redtail Hawk. He (or She) sat there for a while.......
looking one way then the other.....
someone came to join him in the tree top.
They didn't like that I got out of the truck to take more pictures...
Sadly we drove on towards the house......rounding the bend who did we see????? Yes!!! The pair of hawks.
They were sitting together in another tree. Parent and offspring? Mates? I have no idea, but they flew off together----
On our way out we saw the Barred Owl -- think it might be the same one, but not sure. This is our third sighting of this type of owl. Charlie saw him first---do you see him?
Amazing how well they blend in.
