Spot the Hawk

Home, Backyard

We were cooking dinner for some friends, when suddenly blonderose looking out the window said nonchalantly, "Look at the hawk on that antennae across the alley." I got a little more excited and raced out to tell Scott and our guests on the back patio. Yes, we were graced with a hawk in our back yard. Well, not quite our backyard, but in the cemetery across the alley and then the house across the street. I count the cemetery as our backyard though for birdwatching purposes. This hawk looked well fed, and we have noticed a diminishing number of rabbits on the cemetery hill which is usually quite populated. I can put two and two together, can you? Anyway, Scott and Shaggy grabbed their cameras and raced to take a picture. There was no way that my tiny little point and shoot camera could possible get a picture of a distant back lit hawk, so I used the opportunity instead to add to my gallery of Scott taking pictures.

Scott's picture of our red-tailed hawk can be seen here.
