Yesterday I woke up in the morning and spent a few moments thinking about things I appreciate. My thoughts naturally moved to the hawks living in the treetops of our neighborhood, because I’d been wanting to get some good pictures of them to share ever since Candice caught them stretched out in the sun a week ago (once I came outside they were gone). So I was feeling good and imagining what they must look like in the morning when they open their wings to feel the sun, and I was remembering the times I had seen dozens of them flying over our house.
A few hours later, after helping get a few groceries inside from the car, I looked up and saw this:
Luckily they posed for me long enough to get a picture:) After they were done stretching, they took off, and I got another good picture of them below:
I love watching the birds. If you’d like to attract some more beautiful birds into your yard you can try using some Wild Bird Food Recipes.
I think that those pictures are awesome. I am going to get some of that wild bird food and a feeder. Plus you need some binoculars and a camera with a good zoom to get some close up shots. Great job attracting what you wanted!!!
I love birds too and the Red Tailed Hawk is something of a family mascot.
However, I have to point out that these are Turkey Vultures and not Hawks. 🙂
Is that why the head looks kind of funky in the top left of the first picture? There are many hawks here (most schools have hawks as their mascot in this town), so I thought for sure they were hawks. But I did see wild turkeys a couple weeks ago in the yard (much lower to the ground, though – they didn’t fly very high).
