A Red-Tailed Hawk swooped down out of our backyard jackarunda tree, wing brushing my right shoulder/upper arm, as if playing Air-Tag. Made me jump a little and catch my breath. Wow, made me feel so blessed, as tho he wanted to, somehow, touch me or engage in play. Is this highly unusual? It seemed so, as historically, I've only seen Red-Tailed Hawks soaring high above on air currents. AmaZing grace. <3

Great catch! He looks like he's surveying the area in search of breakfast!
