This afternoon I was cleaning up around the house and looked out our french doors that go to the back deck and found a new friend. This hawk was just sitting there taking everything in. He looked right at me as I took the first picture and then looked around. I was actually impressed w/my camera and the zoom. I don't think this one was full grown, but all in all I thought he still looked pretty big.
Check out his/her feet. I think they look huge compared to the rest of the body.
(Don't look close at our terrible stain job on the railing. Now I just made you look!)
