Two weekends ago I was driving into my driveway right before dark when I saw the above hawk flying into a tree on the side of my house. I ran into the house and got my camera. I walked right up to the tree and took this picture. This juvenile has really gotten used to people. It just stared at me.
When the juvenile hawk flew off, it past the above red tailed hawk flying by. The red tailed landed on a light post a couple of houses down. It only stayed for a few seconds before taking off. This is the first time I've seen a red tailed hawk in our neighborhood. We have tons of red shouldered hawks around.
The next morning the resident osprey was on our neighbor's sailboat mast eating a fish. It was too nice of a morning not to go out a take a few pictures.
The osprey decided it didn't want me around for breakfast so it took off down the channel.
As I was going back in the house the juvenile hawk flew into our grapefruit tree in the backyard. It hung out there a while before taking off.
