I sat down at the computer on Friday morning and this hawk landed in the walnut tree outside my window. I thought if I moved he would see me. He turned his head and I moved for the camera. So sorry for the glare from the window but the sun was shining right on it and well, you do what you have to do to get a record shot.
He had his back to me so I stepped a little closer to the window and tried again.
My movement in the window was enough to send Hawk Eye on his way. Now that the leaves are off the trees it's easier to see the birds so hopefully he'll come back one day and pose next time. Or maybe those two pileated woodpeckers in the very top of the oak tree just yesterday morning will decide to land on lower limbs. I can only hope on both counts. I have no idea what kind of hawk this is so if you can identify him please let me know in the comments.
Linking to Wild Bird Wednesday.
