Wow! He gets a 360 degree view of things!
Ha, That would be useful! I see Hawks all the time but never one of these.
certainly NOT without a few good chiropractic chops to loosen up first :)
I love it! They are just regal. And beautiful.
You'd think it would have been a lot easier just to turn around, wouldn't you? :-)
I've got one of those. I'm always lQQking back to see where I've been and how did I get here,(lol).Probably too much. Hawks and Eagles, my fav's along with falcons and horses and whales and panthers and apes and, ooops, I digress. Kidding... just wanted to see if you were listening.
Beautiful! Thanks for sharing!
Morning, that would be something to turn your neck like that......Beautiful pictures of the Hawk, one mighty looking bird, Francine.
No wonder they are such good hunters!
Wow just WOW amazing he is beautiful. B
Haha! That's pretty nuts, and they don't even have to be in The Exorcist!
Just tried it and the answer is no I can't lol. A beautiful bird to see.
imagine being able to touch my mouth to my shoulder, woo hooo... right now from old age, i have trouble looking over my shoulder.. i wish i could turn my head like this.
Laughing at all the comments this morning. Your commenters are definitely awake after daylight savings. Great little series of photos here.
Wish I could do that. Thanks for sharing.JB
Cute. Great swivel head.
Very cool bird and a lovely start to my morning. Thanks! Flexi-neck, a great description and one that makes me smile.
It's probably a good thing we can't.... children wouldn't be able to do things behind their parents' backs, lol!
Nope . . . can't imagine . . . he needs that though to get perspective on the Whole Wide World . . . just in case!
Gorgeous bird !!! Have a wonderful day !!!
Że też do szyja nie boli :). Świetnie go podglądnęłaś. Pozdrawiam.Also that the neck does not hurt :). In a great position photo he did. Yours.
Maybe that would eliminate the need for chiropractors!
He's beautiful! I thought only owls did that. Very cool pictures, Tex. :-)
Just gorgeous.. wish I had even half of that range of motion! -Tammy
I'm afraid I would keep a very sore neck if I tried that!
I have arthritis so bad in my neck. I wish I could turn my head like that. Love those shots!!
ik zal het maar niet proberen
As a mother, it would be quite adventageous! :)Beautiful!
Stunning bird but now all I can think of is The Exorcist! LOL! Have a terrific Tuesday.Best wishes Molly
These are spectacular & awesome images of the red shouldered hawk. Wonderfully captured !
Great photos! Love these birds so majestic!
Are you able to turn your head around farther one way than the other? I am, I think it's from reversing the car.
They are such gorgeous birds. We have a mated pair (?) that live in our vicinity. I've spotted them several times this spring flying around. One of them flew over the other day clutching something in its talons.
I think he has a swivel for a neck! Great photos of a real beauty.
Very pretty. It seems to be completely unaware of you.
Such fascinating creatures.... and it's fascinating that you record them so wonderfully!
My students think I can, or that I have eyes in the back of my head... Very impressive!
It IS amazing! Great shots!
I reckon it comes in handy for a hunter like this fellow. But just imagine the disaster if he forgot which way was forward and tried to fly.
I promise.I shall try until I manage to do this.
Would come in handy with kiddos.. Nice shots
It gives me a headache just thinking about it!
No one is going to slip up on him that's for sure...great shots..
He possessed ;) Lovely captures.
Cool! Another thing that I would have a hard time doing if I were a bird: Sitthing still, just hanging out, turning my head, looking up, then down, then around, just hanging out on a tree branch...I think i'm more related to squirrels! Love the photos!
Time to call the exorcist?
Yikes is right! He's very pretty. Well done on the photos. :)
A fine series showing the bird's flexibility which is amazing. Excellent technical quality. The bird has an attractive feather patterns too.
I just got a crik in my neck. Great photos as usual.
Nice shots! I guess that would come in handy for scratching. Or spotting a victim! Makes my neck feel weird, though.
Sure, I can imagine doing that. I just can't imagine being able to undo it. ;) What a handsome bird. Good captures.
Great series! He's definitely not going to miss a single thing (small birds and mice better beware!)
At this stage in my life it is difficult to look behind me when backing out of a parking spot. But I'll blame that on the seats in cars these days and not my neck. If we still had bench seats, no problem.
What a great photo of this cute bird!Perfect post for WBW!
Wonderful sequence of shots. That is amazing capability.
No, but now that you mention it, if I could I bet it'd get the kink out of my neck ;-)
I think the nuns I had in grade school could do that!!!! Great shots of a unique bird that is new to me!!!
I'd get a crick in my neck. He is a beauty.
Amazing range of motion. It looks like it can scratch whatever itches! LOL And preen those unruly feathers in the middle of the back.
No I can't, but wish I could. He is a beautiful bird.Felicia
Since I've already lost range of motion in my neck, being able to do what Mr Hawk is doing would be Awesome!!
Who says you need eyes in the back of your head! Altho not sure I want to know what might be following me! LOLLovely hawk!
Hi Teresa...Those birds of prey arepretty flexible,and can turn there necks like a trooper, always on the look out!! No comment on how flexible my neck is ; ) !!Great caught..great photos Grace
goodness me!what a cutie!!
Not only are they beautiful, but they can fly and twist their necks 360 degrees.
Who needs a chiropractor with flexibility like that?!?
He's a handsome fellow and does a a neat trick. Really good photos:)
Ah, old nimble neck himself!!!
John would like for me to have a neck like that. He always asks me if a car is coming and I say I don't have a owls' neck.
Only after an anti-inflammatory drug would my head turn like that!!!That's a great hawk!
I know a lot of Moms that wish they could do that. Handsome fella he is!
Yep, that could come in very handy! He's a photogenic fellow, too!
I just want to be able to scratch my back in the middle of the night now and then. This guy has the corner on head turning. He's beautiful!!
You reveal animal personality!Aloha
Isn't nature wonderful.
I know imagine that, and so often you will see them sleeping that way! Amazing shots you captured!
80 comments - congratulations :)I did not read all of them but I can say I agree with them ;)Amazing catch!
Such a pretty colored hawk!
Wowwwww...have a nice week ...love Ria...xxx...
Lovely pictures! No, I should never could do that with my head!Greetings Pia
Thanks Theresa for your nice comment! And of course, you are so right about the bird arts. Thanks! I was so in a hurry when I took those pictures. I will now write the namnes in my blog with a link to you! /Pia
What a GOOD LOOKING creature!!!!!
i wish i could .. then maybe my neck wouldnt feel so stiff all the time ;
What a gorgeous hawk! Love his coloring.
Great photos of the hawk - and a useful ability to move the neck or just more ways to get a stiff neck??
T, lovely shots! It's amazing how they do that!
No, I can't imagine being able to do that but I must admit it could be quite useful, like keeping an eye on what the neighbours are doing on a Saturday night. A nice colourful hawk you found there TWG.
Talk about being able to reach that itchy spot, or seeing where you've been! This is the guy! Neat captures!
Goodness gracious! I think this might come in handy haha. Kind of freaks me out a little though I have to admit. Like the exorcist or something!
I have enough trouble dealing with the stuff that's in front of me, I don't want to worry about what is behind me. That is a beautiful bird Tex!
Incredible. AAs shake his head?Maybe he has a hinged?Regards.Lucia
How many times has it swiveled his head round!!!!!!
This is amazing and beautiful!
I very often see a hawk sat on the same post, but each time i get out of the car to get a better photo.......off it goes. That said, how do you get so close with this hawk that you show. Great photos.peter
Sometimes, I'd love to see what is directly behind me... ha... Great pictures of the hawk.Hugs,Betsy
Just like and OWL!Lindahttp://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com http://deltacountyhistoricalsociety.wordpress.com
That's quite an agile hawk! Fantastic photographs, Theresa!
Such a beautiful bird . I don't think we have red shouldered hawks in New England. I know we have Red Tailed and Cooper hawks as they are always eyeing our chickens !
Great example of how flexible the hawk is!Very nice images of a beautiful raptor!
I can hear my neck making creaking noises just trying to turn like that. Beautiful hawk and great photos, Tex!
Ugh, then I could see my big ol' back side! Love his rusty color.
Hi! Great post you had ...I have been busy and late nights...Great about the lama.....always great visitors you have.Good you have 2 watch dogs :-)
Oh no, I cant really imagine that! ;) great captures of the hawk!
I like Hawks Tex!And this one is so cute!!Amazing pictures and shots!Have a great day!Dimi..
Amazing! I barely get 90 degrees on each side:@)
he is a beauty. It would have been handy for me to turn my head like that when I was teaching.
I'm pretty sure a feather I found must come from one of these guys. Beautiful!
What a gorgeous bird!
Amazing! No need for eyes in the back of his head.
Talk about flexibility!
I swear my mother could do this when we were growing up. She saw EVERYTHING! At least as kids we thought so because we couldn't get away with anything. :-)
Well, this fellow is pretty agile. He gave you some excellent poses and you were patient enough to stay with him.
My kids think I can do that...(my house is full of windows...reflections everywhere)ha!
No...I cannot imagine it. You have some of the most amazing birds around your place. Your pictures always amaze me. These are especially nice. So much color and detail. genie
Wouldn't that be cool if we could. It would be funny at first though. :) Great captures of this handsome guy!
That is a pretty amazing turning radius! Beautiful bird.
They are very much like owls in that way.
Dearest Theresa,Love this Red-Shouldered Hawk's first name you gave it: flexi-necked. Incredible what they can do, like the owls.Hugs to you,Mariette
They don't have bones in neck I guess. :) Great captures.
Would come in really handy, wouldn't it?
Wow that almost hurts. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
Wow! I saw a Red-Shoulder Hawk, with it's prey, in Oklahoma last fall. I was trucking with Bill. They are beautiful! Great photos!
What a handsome bird! Shoot, now I've got a crick in my neck! ;)
Something stung him, and he scratched :))
I sure couldn't do it! sandie
You're right, that's pretty amazing! Wonderful shots of him too!
I have thought about that, actually. Guess it might have come in handy once or twice as a teacher :) Sometimes, when watching owls/eagles/hawks through my lens, I've had to think twice to figure out which way their bodies were facing. Fun to see your beautiful Red-shoulder guy/gal. Not one I've seen here.
I think my mom could...she always told us she had eyes in the back of her head, but she was lying. This must be how she did it! :)
Now THAT was cool!!
Hey, I was just reading about owl's ability to do this in the science section of paper on Monday. Something about blood vessels. Handy for hunting for either hawk or owl.
You raptors are much nicer color than the raptors that we have here in the Netherlands lol ........
No, cannot imagine being able to turn my head that much...I have a hard enough time just turning it to look directly to the side.
Limber and beautiful! Great photos
That bird needs an exorcism.
