Driving back and forth to work is taking longer these days, with camera handy. This sharp shinned hawk is hanging out in the same place, must be good hunting.It took some time to decide if it was a Sharp Shinned or Cooper’s Hawk, and after getting some shots it was a bit easier. What do you think? You can compare Sharp Shinned Hawk with a Cooper’s Hawk by clicking on the names…
The Sandhills are nesting too! This pair has been returning to this location for about three years now, and announce their presence quite vocally.I’ve been seeing him/her everyday on the way home. Their call is a loud and distinct squwak with a loud trill. Unmistakable! You can hear it here.
The flickers are back as well ~ good medicine.
May your day be filled with hawk-eye vision and squawking if you please!
Namaste ~ Star Bear
