I've seen these beautiful hawks around a number of times now, but I
never got close enough to get nice pictures. Finally, my
this one to my yard with a yummy rodent
See the hawk looking down at the owl
? The hawk flew in squawking and the
owl was hooting back.
Here are two older pictures of another hawk. See the
chasing the hawk away from its nest?
Once the hawk gave up on stealing breakfast from the owl it flew away.
I think the hawk that bugged my owl
was a Red-shouldered Hawk, but I'm
not positive. Send me an email if I'm mistaken please.
This final hawk
flying by is a different bird, as is the one being chased. When another
hawk or two poses while I have a camera handy, I'll put more effort into
identifying the birds of prey in my area.
