The birds saw him before he flew onto the electric pole.
Unfortunately, the puppies scared the birds out of their hiding place in the shrubs, but the hawk just stayed put so I could throw them back into the house (really, they run, I don’t throw them–author license), and grab my camera.
Then I took several shots of the hawk. He is sitting on my neighbor’s pole. But he’s been sitting in my bird seed dish before. And he got hold of something and was eating it in one of my shrubs one day. He actually crawled through my shrubs trying to get to baby sparrows. I ran out with my camera to try to take a picture of him, wondering what he was exactly.
Back to writing! 🙂 Have a fantastic Monday!

Wow! Awesome pictures! Hawks are really beautiful. Im amazed how keen their eyesight is. I saw a hawk way above me and it dove to the ground. He was just a speck in the sky. I wish I had their eyesight.
Me too! They are beautiful. I saw two one day and so wished I’d had my camera on me at the time! They were flying over the cornfields. 🙂
