Another Hawk






I think it might be a juvenile red-shouldered hawk, but it's hard to tell for sure.

pretty bird, pretty bird, that is what i am saying. i think you are right, he looks like our hawks here and that is what they are. i get a little miffed at ours because they have decimated our song birds. our yard used to be filled with singing birds and doves cooing and now it is rare to see them.

He does look a bit confused and mussed up. He is really pretty though. Hey, anyone with a red barn like you is like totally in farm girl category in my list. Not to mention your own pond. :)

Sharon said...

He almost looks like he was in a tousle or something. Pretty bird!

Love hawks. We see them flying overhead once in a while. Our backyard is quite open with not a lot of trees so I think they cruise overhead looking for rodents. With so many snakes though, the rodent population is scarce around here.

Great photos!

A very handsome bird, lovely shots!

I have just been looking through all your recent butterfly photos and I must say that not only are the butterflies lovely but your photos of them are really beautiful :)

I love hawks they remind me of my Dad. Whenever I have a very bad day one usually shows up. I take that as a sign of my Dad saying everything will work out fine. Thanks for making me smile. B

Looks like a young'n to me. That snag perch sure does get a lot of use from the local feathered friends.

Bob Bushell said...

Debbie said...

He does look a bit unsure of himself! Still trying to learn how to be a hawk. He chooses perches well!

Cindy said...

We've seen a Cooper's Hawk swooping around here trying to snatch up a bird. Now if it would only take the cowbirds that are still hanging around here, I'd be very happy. Cool pictures!

Hilda R.B said...

So great hawk images. Beautiful!!!!

Linda said...

Another amazing creature!

Debbie @ Swampbilly Ranch said...

Beautiful bird. Beautiful shots.

Jill said...

I've only seen one hawk in my yard this year ... trying to feed off the birds at the feeder!

Chip "Rocket Man" Allen said...

Hawks are such regal birds. We have loads of them around here but they have so much room to hunt that it's usually tough to get a good shot.....or it was until I got my monster lens. Now if I can just get 2 men and a boy to hold that thing up while I focus the shot.......

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...

got to love hawks.

look awesome!

betty xx

SquirrelQueen said...

Great shots of the hawk. I don't know what kind but it does look like a juvenile. We have a Red tailed female that hunts a field from the back edge of our yard.

Nancy said...

Nice shots, T. :)

eileeninmd said...

Cool shots of the hawk!

Ginger said...

Beautiful pictures!

Joe said...

It's probably lookin' for that squirrel.

KaHolly said...

Yeah, Joe's are probably right! I've had a Sharpie zero in on my bird feeder a few times this spring. Doesn't stay long enough for a photo shoot, though!! At least, I'm not out there at the right time!
