A little something different today. A couple days before Christmas as I was taking the girlz for their walk
(approximately 9-10 a.m.) we encountered this fellow. We were unaware that he was perched in a cedar tree and as we walked by he swooped down just a foot or so above our heads. It was fun to watch him glide in front of us and then effortlessly ascend to take his spot in this tree. I only wish he would have been facing the camera when I took this shot.
Nature is so cool.
Look at his talons. WOW!!
***Any of my birder friends know what sort of Hooter this might be???
