We have quite a few hawks around here. You can hear them cry out almost everyday.
The little birds head for cover, when one swoops in.
Last year, about this time, these two came around.
I think they're Red Shouldered Hawks. They're very pretty.
They're big birds....about 18 inches.
Two years ago, we were in another drought. This Broad-winged Hawk came by for a drink.
It was late in the day, so my photo wasn't so good.
These are a bit smaller hawks....15 inches. I like his polka dotted pantaloons.
This guy is around here a lot.
He's a Sharp-shinned Hawk. He's not so big....about 11 inches...the size of a White Winged Dove.
I finally got a photo of him.
We have lots of birds around here. They've been emptying the feeders daily. There are no seeds in the fields for them.
But, those feeders that help the little birds, make an easy target for the big birds.
I guess that's just nature.
'Til next time...
