I heard the hawk earlier Friday as I was walking from my car, since its cry is fairly notable.
But imagine my surprise when I looked up from the piano during a lesson — my piano faces the south windows, about 15 feet away — and saw the guy sitting on a branch in the huge tree outside my office.
He didn’t want his photo taken, so the close-up is blurry.
This majestic creature made my day.
Did you know? The red-tailed hawk is one of the three species colloquially known in the USA as the ‘chickenhawk.’
