Look at that beautiful bird.

This red-tailed hawk was captured on camera by our friend “Martinemom” earlier this week.

Thank you for sharing the picture!

I’m sure this beauty has been a visitor to my yard twice this week. It has a shrill call and it has paused for a rest in our big oak tree and used the bird bath for, what else, a bath! They are great reminders that we need to preserve our surroundings for more than just people. Seenos take note!

His look is like “Yeah I look cute to you humans, but still you want some of this, b-tch?”

Try this:
Use your hand to block off all the hawk’s body.
Now look at that little face!
A puppy?
What else might it be?

A puppy with a beak?………. OK, I want one.

Dr. Jellyfinger® and I purposely left the ®. Be careful what you ask for…..especially if it’s female.

Laura is just jealous. She’s one of my former beddy bye, pillow partners.

Dr. Jellyfinger (mit der trademark symbol) at #10 …….
Your screen must be a whole lot larger than the one on my iPad! 😉

It also reminded me a bit of a river otter, or of a kitten whose ears are pinned back with pink hair clasps (don’t ask….just work with me, people).

The hawk family has had a nest in the eucalyptus trees at the east end of the Crossings for about the past 2 months. Around the end of June baby was born who cried throughout the day for food. We could see the nest and the activity. Momma hawk was swooping around hunting. I must say the population of squirrels has diminished in our neighborhood. My guess is that the hawks that are now being spotted at Ygnacio and Ayers may be this family. The baby is now flying and the incessant squawking for food has ceased. This is the second year we have had a hawk nest in the green belt area on the east end of the Crossings. Last year the nest was in the large oak tree.

He or she went screaming yesterday over my son’s head , tracking something on the ground then flew into a Pine tree here off Indian Ln.
