One of the nice things about living up against woods is the wildlife we get to see. And Springtime is one of the best times of year to see that wildlife. There are no leaves on the trees and the animals are hungry and frisky. That makes for a lot of activity.
On rare occasions, we’ve seen a very elusive Red-Tailed Hawk either perched or flying around these parts. He likes to sit on one of the Oak trees we have nearby, but oddly enough, only on cloudy days. I think every single time we’ve seen this bird, it’s been on a cloudy day.
The reason I mentioned the hawk was elusive is because when we notice him sitting in the trees, Laura runs to get the camera. By the time she gets back, it’s gone. This is consistent – it happens every single time.
Well, yesterday was different. We saw the hawk, Laura ran to get the camera and buy George, when she got back, the hawk was still there. She snapped a few shots of him and I’m going to post the best one below. Now, we have the tripod set back up near the rear slider. When we see another bird as beautiful as this one, things should run much more smoothly.
