This is a tired and old reaction, I suppose, but they certainly are strong and magnificent looking birds!
KInd of the opposite of limbo, don't you think? Just how high can you go? :-)
Those red-tailed hawks are majestic! Great photographs.
I enjoyed the photos especially as I'm making an effort to identify different hawks from each other. There was a time when they all looked the same to me, lol. Have a great Wednesday!
One of my neighbors was afraid that a hawk would carry off her Lab, as unlikely as that happening!
I've heard of chicken on a stick, and deep-fried Mars bars on a stick... but it's my first time for hawk on a stick!(And you know by now I LURVE hawks.)
Location, location, LOCATION!~
Old dead trees have a purpose. Amazing how they can perch that high on so little.
You'd think it'd find someplace more comfortable, wouldn't you..?
a "king of the world" kind of capture!! that's one fine looking bird....and smart, he knows the best spot to hang for the optimum image results!!
Smart birds, perching where they can survey everything -- and i'll bet nothing moving escapes their notice.
Those are probably dangerous to rabbits and squirrels!
Beautiful shots! I have such a fondness for raptors.
They are beautiful, and they look like they mean business, too. :-)
I sure would like to have the balance he has...
Good Morning!They make lovely tamed birds, too bad you're not supposed to...
great sight on the bird! liked the way it perched the stick
They are beautiful birds and I know every BODY has to eat but I don't want to see them hanging around our feeders for an easy birdie buffet!Good Morning Tex!
Ready to catch something for eat!! :)
Beautiful bird of prey! I get nervous for my chickens seeing such a bird!
So gorgeous and stellar with their hawk eyes !
Great pictures . . . Happy there was no wind for that perched hawk . . ,
They do like looking down on one. Nice captures.
An old dead tree still serves as a good place for a rest and for a few shots.
How do they do that? Beats the heck outta me.
I'm always amazed at how they can perch ever so well. Quite a talent.
That is a beautiful bird! That first perch doesn't look too comfortable.
I know we have lots of hawks but don't know if they are this one.
Nice shots. They look like they have moved in. Do they eat duck?
Such a handsome devil.
Nice photos - they can sure cling to the most precarious looking perches!
A magnificent specimen! Great eye, TexWisGirl.
such gorgeous birds.
Wow!!Very impressive birds,Tex!Great shots!Are the ducks ok with the hawks arriving at the pond?I hope so!Dimi...
Hello Dear Tex!I missed you and your beautiful pictures.Magnificent bird. Fantastic photographic series.Greetings from Polish.Lucia
That's a pretty good looking bird. He may start going after your little whistlers if you're not careful.
The first one looks like an uncomfortable perch. The next guy has it right.
They are magnificent birds!
What a pretty bird!!
Nice shots, especially given the distance and movement!
Morning, what a wonderful Bird, great shots you got of the Hawk.Blessings Francine.
You got some wonderful photos of two beautiful hawks.
Really great wildlife shots.MersadMersad Donko Photography
He has quite the view from the dead stick, but I imagine the ride must be quite wobbly
Beautiful! Living in Montreal, Canada, I never get to see this, so thank you so much for sharing.
So gorgeous! They take my breath away every time.
Well you can just imagine how much I enjoyed this set...beautifully done. I am guessing female on the lower images and male in top images~
aren't they funny??? Okay, i suppose THEY don't think of themselves that way - BUT, last year - no wait, the year before last - i had several regular hawk visitors . . they weren't beautiful red like this - BUT, they returned so often i could tell them apart . they would sit on the fence, i would come out and try to tell them a story . . their looks are amazing . . first, like they think I'm insignificant, then, like I'm an annoyance . . then, they would fly over a few feet on the fence . . but stay to hear the entire story. See, the next door neighbors have a thing about bird feet touching their new-ish plastic fence - so, the put up an electric bird call thing - which seemed to invite a LOT of larger birds to come check it out . . . Yours . . Awesome . . . (sending smiles)
That a new kinda snack? Hawk on a stick? Yikes!
Beautiful majestic bird. Great images!
beautiful, love how he clings to the stick.
One very precarious perch, hang on for safety, and the other, a solid branch, I wonder how they choose where to be, lovely photos as always. Jean.
They are handsome birds. I like the one on the stick.
Such a beautiful and commanding bird. Nice sighting and capture for you!
Lovley place for that bird ,nice shot ,Nette
I love these photos, the Hawks is beautiful!
Hi TWG - they are lovely looking creatures aren't they .. amazing to see .. great photos - cheers Hilary
Just saw this bird again in California. It's a piece of art. Your pics prove it!
I saw your eagle picture on Brian's blog. It is really brilliant.
Wow he is a beauty! and so impressive how he can sit on this thin stick!! :)
What a great vantage point he has.. and that he's given you for these captures.
Checking out the menu!
Lovely birds to see... the first perch looks precarious.
T, what beauties! That one couldn't get much further on the end of that branch!
what a strong beak he has...
Beautiful bird. How do they do that? Balance up so high on a stick? Like a hawk lollipop, sort of.
You captured them well....I love how birds enjoy balancing on the tip of a stick!
They are an incredible bird with a stern but elegant look. Such a strong bird too.
Great capture on the images - they are so majestic.
Awesome shots, as usual.
You have so many lovely birds at your pond! :)
Oh, snap! Those are awesome! And they picked great perches! I hope the hawks return to my yard this winter and, hopefully, reduce the starling and/or House Sparrow population.Does anyone say "oh, snap" anymore? :-)
Their ability to perch is amazing.
Hawks are so handsome, aren't they? Noble creatures, I think!...:)JP
Great shots, T. :)
Awesome captures my friend what a beautiful bird. =0)My Phlog
One has to wonder how he stays perched up on that stick! Beautiful raptor.
Wow..great shots! Love seeing Hawks!
Wow, this is very nice !
They are pretty birds! And there's Bubba down the bottom again:@)
My, what big feet you have Mr Hawk!
I always love looking a hawks and eagles and even owls!Lindahttp://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com/?s=The+Adventures+of+Fuzzy+and+Boomer&submit=Search http://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com
Those claws really do hold on tight! We love watching the hawks around here too.
That first one looks like he is hanging on for dear life!
HAndsome and very proud looking hawks.
i wonder what he was looking at? what a gorgeous hawk. love all those colors. great pics. ( :
look at THAT!!!!!ALOHA from HonoluluComfortSpiral =^..^= . <3 . >< } } (°>
Please, don't let me slip down, I am gripping tight.
Something about the second picture reminds me of a turkey! Amazing shots.
I guess it's all about the view when you're a Hawk!
This is a gorgeous bird. Wow.
Dearest Theresa,Lovely photos and I love the way they can sit perched high on such a branch!Hugs,Mariette
Wow, after perusing your images, I believe that I saw one of those (fleetingly) around here. Very cool!
Beautiful bird...unless you are a rodent.
I am always amazed by the deadly looks of these guys. Nice photos.
That stick does not look strong enough to support this handsome guy. (I KNOW there are female raptors, but I find it very difficult somehow to refer to them as female. In reality the females are probably the fiercest!
Beautiful shots! Beautiful birds!
surprised the twig didn't break! lol
Good balancing act.
You wonder how they balance on branches sometimes! Amazing!!
Hi Tex,What brilliant photos. I am not sure what bird it is!looks like a hawk !How can it hold on so tight at the top of the long tree branch.. incredible.Amazing that you are having such strange weather there in Texas.Here our weather is windy and raining.looks like its set in for the rest of the week.val x
What a fantastic bird.
He's is huge! Love the pictures! :)
A good walker !!
What awesome takes of this Hawk.
Wow! I am always awed by the beauty and majesty of hawks! You got some great photos of them!
How do they do that? (Dangle at the top of a very thin stick.) Just amazing to me; love that you caught these shots.
Awesome birds. The one on the stick has great balance.
They are magnificent!!
Fascinating balancing act with the Hawk on a pole.
Always amazes me to see a (relatively) big bird standing on a skinny stick. I think they have enough confidence in their wings to feel secure there.
And you have TWO of them? I hope they aren't looking for Painted Buntings!
Wow, a hawk sitting out in the open like that in Australia would be getting dive-bombed by other birds. It is quite a pretty species though, with its barring and reddish colours.
I like how he holding on to that leaning branch. Beautiful bird just the same.Hugs,JB
You have to love those hawks, isn't it amazing how they can balance like that.
Even if they do wobble a bit, birds ability to hang on to tiny twigs is remarkable,.Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne.PS: sorry for slow reply, I've been away from home because of work!
love these photos. such a wonderful, amazing bird. ah, your bird photos never fail to thrill me.
Wonderful photos of these gorgeous birds.
I would imagine they were causing quite a bit of chatter! Handsome hawks!Lindy
Oh how I admire these birds of prey! Don't like seeing them in action, but posing on a branch they look so magnificent.
Great shots! I'm so trying to learn to recognize the ones I see but they look so much alike. :)
watching… we have a few around here and they have recently started hanging out on a horse fence. I got a cool photo of one flying away.
beautiful bird in various poses
What a beautiful bird of prey is this. His colors are also fantasist itself. I ehb never seen such a beautiful robber!
A super group of shots.
