Tex, awesome series on the Red-Shouldered Hawk! Happy Sunday!
I have only seen these in Oklahoma. They are gorgeous.
Gave me neck strain just looking at him.
Amazing shots and a beautiful bird. Have a serene Sunday and enjoy some big easy today.Best wishes Molly
Thank you for bringing him to us with your "eyes like a hawk" lens. I think I need a "neck like a hawk" driving this Houston traffic. have a great day!
Wow, he's amazing! I once saw one from quite close up. He was sitting in a bare tree in an apartment parking lot, and I slowed and stopped about ten feet away and just watched him for a long time.
he is a beauty, like his wing feathers. does 2 raccoon trump 1 hawk today? LOL
That little Red-Shouldered Hawk is something else, limber as all get out! Great shots! Thanks for the dose of bird happiness on this glorious Sunday morning~
Lovely pictures of the hawk! You have really many different birds in your garden.
Even though they are cropped,these are lovely pictures. I like how the detail in the tail feathers shows up so well.
Great photos shots on that hawk. He takes good care of his appearances.Have a great week Theresa.Hugs,JB
usually the hawks i see are after a treat. this is something i have never seen. neat-o, tex!! awesome moments. ( :
The hawk appears to feel very safe there. :)
Yes, I think he needed help with that itch. :)
Perfect balance, and down near the bottom of the branch, a darker area looks so like a squirrel's head, just peeping out a little. Super cropped photos. Cheers, Jean.
What a beauty !! Great shots !
Oh those are just brilliant shots. I love watching the preening process... so flexible :D)
Love that camera work. Also the title.
A great series of shots!!
Hard to tell if he was doing the fandango or the waltz with those spread skirts/wings.
such a beauty... thanks for cropping in so we could enjoy the full view. i love seeing hawks anywhere. they're a gorgeous bird. have a great day~
So, what was for dinner?Love these images.
I heard tell they can do a 360 with their neck/head . . .Would be a very good thing when ya gotta an itch!
Wow! That head just disappears with that bendy neck. If only they had more tool-use, they could pick up a stick and use it as a back-scratcher!
Wow! I'm looking forward to see her or her relatives here in the North Country. They are quite rare here though I've been up close and personal to some in Florida...:)
These are very good, Theresa. Such balance as he sits steadily on that branch while twisting his body into all sorts of positions. Made me want to help him scratch that itch.
He is a beauty!! But please go to yonder pond for dinner!!
Oh you have a great hawk eye ;) Great series.
So good looking! He wants to stay that way!
Wow - he's a beauty! If I twisted my neck around that far I think my head would fall off.
he's dressed in his Sunday best or formals. love my hawks, my falcons, my eagles. always with keen eyes, well dressed talons, ready to march at the ready. great pics, mi amigahappy Sunday
Beautiful photos of the Red-shouldered Hawk.I would have been standing next to you, to photograph him.Greetings Irma
Love your beautiful hawk! I know what it feels like to get that itch, why is it always where you can't reach? :-)
He does an amazing job of it, and watching each pose, especially his masterful backward head tilt (wow) reaching his back, brings the many poses of my cat actually mimicking many of those poses as I type this!
Awesome shots of this handsome fellow!
What a beauty.I can see how they got their name.
I guess he was so busy preening he wasn't looking for lunch. Excellent shots even from far away. MB
Hi Teresa... He is a well groomed nice looking fella or gal maybe!Great set of photo's!!Grace
Whiling away the hours till lunch time. Buffet at the pond, Francine.
Amazing images. Great eye for capturing this bird!
Love the shot with his tail feathers spread. Nice series of preening.
I like his stylin' yellow feet
Wow, he is a pretty boy:@)
Taking his repose in private. I wonder why?
He put on a good display for you!
Dearest Theresa,What a fantastic photos of the red shouldered hawk's preening! Thanks for sharing.Hugs,Mariette
Fantastic shots. Great photographic series. Beautiful bird. Greetings.
What a wonderful find! His "skirt" is beautiful. Love to see him preening. I wish I could maneuver like that. :-)
And he never once looses his balance--I would have been in the water on the first move! :-)
Great series on the Red-Shouldered Hawk, Tex!Gorgeous pictures!Wish you a happy week!Dimi...
Miałaś fajne odwiedziny :) Gratuluje udanej relacji :)Greets from Poland
Great photos! He is beautiful!
Ah, pruning for a hot date without a doubt!! Love it!!
Nice one, the Hawk has a way of cute over cute. Excellent shots.
gorgeous bird and great shots. they don't hang around here long enough for me to get more than one or two shots. I think I saw a mississippi kite this morning so I guess they have returned for the summer.
We have this beautiful raptor here in KY, too. Enjoyed these preening shots.
A great serie of this Hawk, well done!
Really preening itself.
Well, you caught the very essence of this pretty fellow. The swivelling heads of raptors never fail to amaze me!
a marilyn monroe wanna' be!!
He's quite handsome! I'm glad I'm not a mouse or small critter...I'd be shakin' in my boots!
Pretty lady with a beautiful skirt as you call it. Wish I could turn my neck around like that.
.°º｡✿✿彡Ótimo modelo fotográfico! Cute!!!!Bom domingo!Boa semana!Beijinhos.✿✿° ·.
Those birds are so agile!
Oh #5 I like. So proud.They are all a delight.
I think #7 when he is standing so proud. I like that one.
He's a beauty, I bet it was fun watching him.
Beautiful bird! I love the shot with the spread tail feathers.
I love hawks. We had two orphaned ones as pets for a couple years when I was little and lived on the farm. By about the 2nd year they adapted to the wild and wouldn't come to my dad when we whistled for them anymore. But that's OK. They were happy being wild.Beautiful.xo Catherine
T, great series of shots! I love the raptors!
I just fail to come up with the right descriptive word for this series Ms. T....other than stunning, fabulous, marvelous, majestic, beautiful...well, you get my meaning!!!
Wonderful photos, Tex, and that Red Shouldered Hawk knows just how beautiful he is, don't you think? Whistlers take the day off?Cheers and hugs,Jo, Stella and the Zhat
The perfect hunter. Top pictures.Greetings,Filip
Great shots, I love the way they can twist their heads around.
Nice tail feathers! He picked a great perch, too! The yellow feet really stand out.
You got him in so many different actions. Excellent photography!
Very nice telephotos !
What a beauty :)
I love his/her skirt! I wish I was that flexible!
Now I'll bet she's using her reflection in the water to do all her preening.
Wonderful photos, I love that hawk!
So beautiful, even when he's trying to scratch that itch.
He wanted to look good for his close up.
Because of pictures on your great blog I'm trying to pay more attention to the wildlife around me. I haven't spotted anything interesting yet but I'm determined!
He doesn't bother your whistlers, does he? I have one that hangs around and while he is gorgeous...I fear for my martins and their babies this time of year.
What a beauty T. I love his bright yellow beak and claws.
He's quite the contortionist!
I am amazed how birds like to perch on a pole.
A beautiful creature!
What a wonderful creature. He put on quite the show for you.
Certainly a handsome bird!
Great set of shots - one does have keep ones feathers in proper order!Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
solche Bilder..wunderschön DANKE mit einem LG vom katerchen
What a pretty bird.
One of these days, I get an eagle preening...right place at the right time!!! This guy is great, T!...:)JP
Great shots!Well done!Greetings
It's seems so peaceful when the hawk sitting there and don't care about the rest around him.Lucky you that saw this :)
A great series of shots.Looks like he is wearing bright yellow wellies.
Amazing series Tex! Adore the way it twist the head
That bird's got an itch it can't reach, LOL
I just love raptors. These are fabulous shots, especially the ones of the spread wings. He is a beauty!
Showing off those beautiful feathers!
great to watch the hawk preening like this, lovely photos
He certainly can twist and turn!
Those brightly colored feet!Nice crops Tex!
Love those birds of prey!! Good thing there are not any little ducklings around.
Ohhhhhhhhhh .... did you get that lucky!! Wonderful to see this red-shouldered hawk. I did not know him, but I do now.
You got some amazing shots, fanned out skirting is not seen often.
Hawk Yogawho knew?
It must have been getting ready to meet a lady friend....or a male friend! It is that time of year!(I was at the Houston Airport Tuesday night of last week....thought of you.)
Oh, he's wonderful! Great photos!
Wonderful you got to watch this!!! I always think, "feel free to drop some feathers."
Such a beautiful, regal and deadly looking bird. I love its colors.Nice photos!
He's so handsome and beautiful.
Oh to be SO FLEXIBLE! :D~Lindy
