Rare Close-up Observance

We have hawks on our farm that we’ve spotted before.  Usually we see them swooping through the sky or hear their screachy call.  On occasion, we’ve come upon one on the fence post, but it’s always flown away very quickly.  The other day, though, we were given a rare opportunity by this red-tailed hawk to sit in the car and watch it for almost a full minute!  It’s a beautiful creature that’s even more lovely when it flies.  And those talons – watch out mice!

And just what do you do when you happen upon an awesome opportunity like this? Keep the learning going by pulling out Beautiful Birds, of course!
