Free Flying

public.jpeg

As we drove into the Nature Preserve parking lot, we saw this Broad-winged Hawk making her entry as well. She parked in a tree across the field, where I was able to capture a couple photos. The best photo may be this one, as she grew nervous about our cameras and took flight to a more secure, and hidden location.

We have not been out to make a video for a few days. Teresa sprained her knee, and I have been getting in some extra biking with one of my sons. I hope we can get out sometime this week.

This is My Lunch!

Teresa and I drove up to Grand Lake Saint Marys this week. While we were hiking along the west side of the lake, we saw this Cooper’s hawk take down a small bird. Natures cycle of life, I guess.

Shortly after I took this photo, she flew off, with lunch. It was almost more than she could carry, but she made it.

Brave Hawk or Napping Eagles

I photographed this hawk a couple of days ago while she was hunting over a large open field. There is nothing unusual about this photo, other than the fact that this hawk was hunting about 50 feet from an eagles nest. The last photo is the nest. Clearly, the eagles were not here, but they sound be soon. Brave hawk or napping eagles ...

And if you are still reading .... I had some good news yesterday. I had my bi-annual PSA test, and I am still cancer free. Made my day!

Big, beautiful Hawk

We were driving to Maple Ridge Reserve when I spotted this Broad-winged Hawk. She was not brothered when I got out of the car to take her picture. She is one of the larger hawks I have seen recently. Beautiful raptor.
