Unidentified hawk

I never got to see this one from the front so couldn't make an I.D. (might be another red-shouldered) but I liked his form against the bluebonnets in the front pasture.




One can never show enough Texas bluebonnet pix, although the camera really doesn't do it justice...

What a gorgeous view you have of the bluebonnets. So jealous.
By his beak and eye marking, I agree that your hawk is a Red Shouldered.
I hope he isn't eying up a nest of eggs.
Is the Blue Heron still around? I was thinking they may decide to nest in your reed grasses along the pond?

The bluebonnets with the hawk on the fence is just gorgeous! I was so excited this week to show off my Wordless Wednesday post of birds because I knew you would appreciate it. Enjoy your weekend!

He is looking hard for that tasty morsel moving among the bluebonnets. Bluebonnets. I need to go back to Texas in the spring.

That looks like a red tailed hawk!

Good photos of the Hawks and Blue bonnets. I don't know what kind of hawk that is.

That's right T., You can not have too many pics of Blue Bonnets. They really are pretty and what a nice back ground for a pic. Maybe for one of you drawings too?

Anything is going to look great posed in front of your fabulous field of bluebonnet flowers. I like the expression on the hawks face. What a beaut!

We love our hawks! And get so mad when the other birdies pick on them!! :(

Hi Texwisgirl I love Texas Bluebonnets! Great shot of the flower-filled pasture! I am guessing that your hawk may be a Cooper's Hawk but I am not too certain of that. The Cooper's Hawk has that coloring and is a smaller hawk. Cooper's Hawks hunt songbirds. Have a wonderful Friday and enjoy those beautiful Bluebonnets!

A fine series. I would love to see a field of bluebonnets in person...never had that pleasure...yet! :-)

Really, really beautiful!

Trisha said...

Those bluebonnets are beautiful!!

Beautiful bird -- you sure get birds where you are. It snowed last night here and is very cold this morning. I worry about the meadow larks. I saw a pair when I walked the dogs, but last year they took off after a late snow.--Inger

Allison said...

BEAUTIFUL. That's all I have to say. Just BEAUTIFUL.

Nancy said...

Very nice photo, T. Great that he posed for you!

FYI -- the hubby bought 10 more of those solar birdfeeders for me today -- he made a deal with the farm store owner. Good grief! :)

Kay said...

The only thing better than a field of bluebonnets is half a dozen grandchildren posing in the field with them. (We just came home from Brenham where we admired bluebonnets and grandchildren.) You are so lucky to have these best-of-all wildflowers in your view!

I just found your blog--I'll be back!

Love that last photo! Well, I like the hawk, too, but that last would make a nice painting.

They say they like water and woods..and yours has red shoulders for sure!!!

You're right about doing justice to the bluebonnets. I actually laid down in the middle of mine just to get up close and personal!
