I have written before about the great photo opportunities that begin the minute you walk out your back door. I was greeted with another example on New Year’s Day as this red-shouldered hawk visited the back yard. (please see second image below)
Hawks are not as common a site for me as lets say cardinals or wrens are, but when they do appear they are quite an impressive presence, so much so that the rest of the birds who usually populate the backyard feeders keep a respectful distance.
It was fun way to start the year! Thank you so much for clicking on my post today!
