This morning JL left for work and I tried to call him on the cell phone to remind him to take his boots. We are supposed to get 1-3 inches of the white stuff today at about the time he will be leaving to come home.
Anyway, he did not answer his phone. The odd thing is I knew I did not hear his car go. So I went flying out the door and saw JL on the ground with his camera out looking at a tree across the way.
Shocked aren’t you that he had his camera ;)
When he went outside he heard a bird calling from across the way and saw this:
As he stood there he heard something calling back to the bird seen above. JL wanted to get closer shots, so he used the great zoom on his camera and was able to get the following pictures to help us identify what we suppose is a hawk here in the middle of the city.
Check out this BIG/SHARP beak:
And man these eyes are certainly made for hunting:
Sitting and waiting for an answer from it’s bird friend:
Maybe this "little" bird will help to control the squirrel population or even the crow troubles the area is having. I just hope it stays WAY up there when we are outside.
