Oh how gorgeous, I adore hawks! Your photos captured his beauty perfectly.

We mostly see red-tailed hawks around here...and bald eagles.

Beth Edwards said...

you have the greatest photo moments. too cool!! what a beautiful hawk. (:

edenhills said...

Great captures. I'm always impressed at how close you get to these birds.

Bob Bushell said...

I wish I was living with you, not that a good woman, which you are, but, you attract such variable sort of wildlife. Take this for instant, it is cute.

Daryl said...

oh boy... i bet he blends in with the trees easily ...

Sandra said...

he is a beauty and in one of these he looks like he is giving you The Eye

Catherine said...

Glorious! Nature at it's finest.

holdingmoments said...

What a beauty.

S. J. Qualls said...

Beautiful bird! Nice that you could catch the various views of it!

DJan said...

That's a good-looking bird! I am enamored with hawks myself. We don't have any of these in our area.

Bernadine said...

I love to see these beautiful birds. Very nice photos. And once again, I'm amazed at all the different types of large birds you have in your area. That is one great pond to attract them all!

bailey-road.com said...

Such a beauty! I haven't seen our local ones up close lately.

Pix at Under the Oaks said...

He is beautiful in your pictures Tex but I hate seeing him/her sitting in our dying old oak eyeing our birds at the feeders.

Donna said...

Oh, he's a pretty one!

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

He's handsome, those eyes are so piercing.

Beth said...

Magnificent photos!

MTWaggin said...

Look at those wonderful shots! Great job and what a neat bird. I'm kind of partial to the hawks (and herons of course).

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Looking for a tree rat hopefully.

Kjell T. Evensen said...

rainfield61 said...

This young one is trying to show off.

Just like every youngster.

They think they are pretty.

The old one does not. Like me.

Hanne Bente said...

Jan n Jer said...

Wow...what a thrill...great capture!

Rose said...

Oh, you lucky, lucky girl! To get to take all those shots is awesome.

Patty Woodland said...

Isn't he regal. I love raptors

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

A beautiful look at him! I love when I see them gliding through the skies!

Farm Girl said...

You are a good spotter. I never can see them. You must have really watched to see where he landed. I always get kind of creeped out because I know he can see me and I can't see him until he scolds me. We have a love/hate relationship. He wants my chickens and I won't let our hawk have them. I never can get a shot like that or any and you got a bunch. I am impressed.

Ron said...

These are some nice shots!

Sylvia K said...

Beautiful bird and terrific shots!!!

DeniseinVA said...

These photos of your red-tailed hawk are fantastic!

NatureFootstep said...

wow, that´s a beautiful one. It must have been wonderful to see and study this young bird.

i stora drag said...

Really nice and a great moment I suppose! Always exciting to see such birds!
Greetings Pia

FOREST SNAPPER said...

There is some thing about raptors more than other birds that make them interesting. very nice pics.

Barb said...

Oh I love hawks but I can never get close enough to them! great shots!

Hookin It With Mr. Lick Lick said...

Great pictures! He's a little hard to see in the pond picture. Blends in perfectly. He's looking at you like you're encroaching on his private time. :o)

Modesto Viegas said...

Good capture!!!

Jeevan said...

I sight hawk in my neighborhood too... Wonderful capture and I liked the bird at fight.

Molly The Wally said...

Majestic! Have a terrific Tuesday.
Best wishes Molly

Jane said...

Priceless to find, to see, then to photograph. All your finds are incredible. Sometimes I wish I had wings like that!

Randy said...

I would not want to be at the end of those claws.

Jo's World said...

It must be wonderful to see birds of prey in your garden...

Marissa @Life On Our Mountain said...

What a beauty! Great shots, T.

I have a red tailed hawk (I'm assuming it's the same hawk each time) who visits my bird feeders.

He is a cannibal and I hate him for snatching my bird friends for his meal, yet I like him because he's so wild and beautiful.

Butterbean Row said...

Amazing captures!

HansHB said...

Great shots, - lovely to see all these details in your photos!

Findlay Wilde said...

Wonderful series on the Red-Shoulder, a bird I have only seen once in the distance. awesome!

黄清华 Wong Ching Wah said...

Their eyes seems to always scanning for something !

Deb said...

you get the coolest birds....

Annette said...

I could watch hawks soar all day long.

Rohrerbot said...

You have been awesome posting all these cool birds. Surprisingly I haven't gotten to looking at these hawks yet even though they are here in Tucson sometimes. Really exciting! Now where can I put a pond around here?:)

Renae said...

I'd get homesick for those yummy feelings too (fall in Wisconsin). I have only lived here or in Seattle for 4 yrs long time back. Wishing you Wisconsin weather occasionally in Texas, ok?

Michelle said...

He is quite a specimen!

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Theresa, I think the "In-flight" photo is the best of your series. Good job! Have a wonderful Wednesday tomorrow.

~mel said...

Great photo post ~ as always! I bet you just LOVE your pond and having that water source so close to the house that you can see everything that visits. Thanks for sharing:)

Paula said...

These pictures are AMAZING!! Even though I don't like hawks to come around and scare my chickens, I can't help but admire them!

Mary said...

That hawk is awesome...I love your photos...love hawks. You have a great share of pics of him.

Gillian Olson said...

A beautiful bird, what great pictures too!

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,

Such a hawk is majestic looking. It looks like they wear 'bloomers'...
Hugs to you,
Mariette

bj said...

He is such a magnificent bird.
Hawks have always scared me a bit...they look like they are frowning or something.
This one is sure pretty.

R.Ramakrishnan said...

Magnificent pics of the hawk - so majestic in flight. These are incredible birds.

Indrani said...

The one in flight is absolutely fantastic!

Liking your "juvenile" series a lot. Photos show just a promise of what they'll be will full grown. Love the markings on this young one.

Betty Manousos said...

georgettesullins said...

Great photos. You never "lost" him.

Michaele said...

Stunning photos. Lucky you to capture him for us.

Linda said...

What a beautiful bird! I'm intrigued by all hawks. I'm not so good at identifying them, but there's something regal about each one.

Larry said...

A great series of the juvie Red-shouldered Hawk Theresa! I'm certain that you know they are my favorite Buteo? They nest around here somewhere but I have yet to find their nest tree. Beautiful shots!

SweetMarie said...

Gorgeous photos! We had a mama and daddy with their young one hanging around the neighborhood.

laura.forestdreams:) said...

such gorgeous birds!!
and terrific shots!!

waldlaeufer68 said...

very nice pictures ... I myself find these fascinating birds of prey ..
greetings Frank

Maura @ Kisiwa Creek Photography said...

I bet you sit out there on your deck near the pond and see the most WONDERFUL sights Theresa. Especially this time of year when the birds are migrating! Hope you got some rain down here...we got a bit but not enough to get us out of the drought. The poor lilacs are in terrible shape here on the farm. Looks like I'll be cutting them back and hoping for the best. I hope you fared better down there. Take care :)

Rebecca said...

Wow, this is a great set!

Brian King said...
