Great closeup shots, Theresa!
Handsome devil. Great shots!
Je hebt hier een prachtige kans gekregen.
Don't let the hearts fool you. Any bird that can spin its head like a top like that is just trouble waiting to happen. :-)
Great pictures! That bird is positively majestic. I'll bet the small birds stayed away.
Wow - how nice.
Those plummage markings are secret code for "I ♥ chickens." O.O *chuckles*
Fierce and beautiful!! He reminds me of the juvenile owl that visited us a couple of years ago! Great photos, Theresa! blessings ~ tannaps you know I WILL enjoy those boys!! ha ha! Thank you.
What a beauty! (And I'm singing 'You Gotta Have Heart'!)
He is a very handsome hawk, i saw the hearts.. a real beauty. wish i could turn my head even half as far as he can
Wow, he really is a beauty:@)
Beautifully done! They are such fun to watch as they preen.
The look in his eyes is very dominant and stern. Great shots!MersadMersad Donko Photography
I love to see him there looking so majestic but I don't like seeing him eat his lunch. Hugs,JB
Hawks are beautiful, intelligent birds. The other day, I heard a ruckus out by the chicken coop - I looked and all the hens were running and hiding under the trucks, trailers, trees - I looked up and saw a hawk circling around the yard. I see one almost every day hunting mice in our field - maybe not mice that day - chicks are easy pickins too. Have a great day!
Theresa, great job on all these close up shots of the hawk. Looks like he just thought he'd ignore you and let you take some pictures!
He certainly was a cooperative subject for you! Very good close-ups!
Really great photos!
Stunning design and coloring. btw--- What's for dinner?
Do you know all the names by heart or do you use a bird book?
What a beauty! I gazed at him for a long time. :-)
They are such magnificent creatures.
what a majestic bird. these and primarily eagles are the spirit of the great expanse of the sky.great capture of such beauty.gracias for sharing mi amiga
Lovely captures, Theresa. I love the yellow coloration on the beak, which only a good close-up could have captured! Well done!!Have a Beautiful Day!Peace :)
These are superb shot enabling us to see the close up of his plumage.
Stunning bird...Those squirrels hanging around the feeder had better keep their eyes open for that guy!
Amazing series of photos of such a beautiful bird - love the hearts on his chest!!
A handsome fellow. He is prepared to take flight I am sure when his time is right. He is cruising his head and he has eyes of sharpness focus to get what he sees. Great takes.
OMD they are prefect little hearts. How sweet. Have a terrific Tuesday.Best wishes Molly
Wat een schoonheid, prachtig zo als hij blijft zitten. Een hele mooie serie.
wow! superb capture and great detail... like the last one lot
Morning, great looking bird, the Hawks look so fierce to me, that sharp bill I guess.Blessings Francine.
such a magnificent bird. and great shots. I need a better camera.
Absolutely beautiful. I can just feel the feathers. wonderful closeups.
He's quite the bird! Awesome feathers!
Wow...he's a beauty...I think I have one something like him living in the woods beside my house!
Truly a beautiful bird.
These are SO gorgeous!
A fine group of pictures of this youngster. I like all the variety you captured. The area he was sitting in obscured him occasionally, but you got excellent shots anyway.
Nice shots of a beautiful bird.
Has to be a juvenile, he has the same look in the eye as my kids did when they were teenagers.
Oh wow! Magnificent. Absolutely fabulous captures!
Oh my goodness such beautiful pictures and with tiny hearts no less.
Wonderful detail, Theresa. You and your camera did quite a job capturing these.
Some great birds visit your pond!
I did see the hearts; that's pretty amazing. :)
What a great-looking bird!~
Lovely bird! I hope it don't take your squirrels!
Wow! Super pictures. I do love raptors, and it's even better when you can see them up close. Awesome shots.
These are super shots, Theresa! He did pose and preen beautifully for you!!
Wow- these are awesome shots, Theresa! I'm surprised he sat still so long.
I know I should be able to come up with more than OMG but that is what runs through my head, I could say these are scrumptious [that's a new one :-)]beautiful beautiful!
i saw those hearts right away!!! really beautiful close-ups, does he go after the birds at the feeders??? and i'm curious about the whistlers, he doesn't go after them, does he????
Wow! I do love raptors.Awesome shots.
gorgeous!!! luv those spots. ( :
Nice shots! Cool!
Very regal guy, and such an intense face. Looks like you caught him at a good resting moment.
Great Teresa, looks very young !!
he is such a handsome fellow. the hearts are so cool.
That is one gorgeous and sturdy fella. My GSD would have loved to chase him out of your air space. :-)
That heart is perfect!
Wow!!What a beauty Tex!!Great captures!Gorgeous pictures!!Dimi...
Fabulous shots of this young one, Tex! Love the hearts.
Waiting for breakfast, or perhaps lunch before something tasty comes along
Hubby has chased one from the backyard several times! We frequently find piles of feathers.
Quite the stunner! These guys can be so vocal. Nice to see one stop by your place.
Beautiful photos, I love that Hawk.
What a beauty!Lindy
He's just beautiful!!! Wow--GREAT shots!!!!

Great photos of the hawk and such a magnificent bird.
It's a very handsome hawk. Do you get a lot of them?
Great series of a gorgeos bird!
Beautiful images of one the Raptor, love it.
I love the shot of him prickling his feathers, so fantastic! The perfect little heart is amazing, too, and turning his head around to groom his back. I hear the screech if a hawk in my yard sometimes but haven't been able to see him alit in a tree.
He is gorgeous!!!!
Hi TWG - fantastic shots .. loved looking at him/her - beautiful red shouldered hawk .. cheers Hilary
You must have wonderful eyes. I can't ever see ours when he is in a tree. I know he is there but can never spot him, as soon as he knows I have spotted him he is off. So great job! The hearts are wonderful.
What a beauty. Really neat you got those hearts! Extra gift.
Why is it called Red Shouldered . ? Interesting ..
Awesome visitor, Tex! Great shots.. Enjoy your evening.
What a beauty! These are duper shots, Theresa!
What a beautiful hawk with gorgeous markings. Your photos are great!
What a gorgeous creature that is! Nice series of hawk portraits!!
Wonderful close ups of a gorgeous hawk. The are here in the summer but quite rare. I've seen lots of them in Florida during our winter vacations...:)
What fantastic shots of the hawk! I see all the hearts; just so amazing!

His expression is quite intense in that first photo!
Stunning photos. I really enjoyed these.
Oh he's stunning. It's been a long time since I've seen a hawk. Great captures.
gorgeous bird, love the hearts!
Such a beautiful bird and those are great shots too. Coincidentally I saw one today standing on the side of the road in my neighborhood. Just before I passed him, he took off and flew right in front of my car! The hearts reminded me of Clytie's Random Hearts blog at http://clytie-randomhearts.blogspot.com
Gorgeous bird! Love the shots and the "heart" detail on the feathers.
I like his heart marking on his feather.
Incredible, amazing photos! What detail and beauty! I never seem to have the right lens with me when I see a hawk. I guess I'll just keep enjoying your great photos!
What amazing photos of the hawk, he looks pretty serious for a youngin'! :-)
OMG, thAt is one of the most beautiful birds I have ever seen. The hearts!! Really good shots of this beauty.
Wow, wow, wow, what a gorgeous bird!Great shots Theresa!

Beautiful hawk! Love the feathers.
Look at that sharp beak. Great captures!
Wow, you got some really nice pictures of this one!
What a beauty! Will it prey on the smaller birds?
That's a beautiful bird! Aren't their necks amazing!
I saw one up close in Oklahoma. Impressive.
Handsom and preening. :)
Wow! Great photos of this beautiful bird!!
These are just marvelous shares Theresa, and wow you got really close too. At first glance I was thinking a juvenile Coopers Hawk, but after seeing more, I am thinking yes juvenile Red-Shouldered Hawk... Beautiful!!!
beautiful pictures, love watching these guys but hate to see them around the bird feeders!
Beautiful Hawk.. :-)))
He's beautiful, T.
What a handsome and proud looking shouldered hawk♡♡♡ Yes,impressive plumage and love the coordinated yellow part of the beak and legs :-)Oh, I was so happy to read 'Crazy neck dexterity' do you remember I wrote birds neck is flexible before? You used the perfect words(for me), Theresa (^_^)ｖSending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*
