A raptor visitationPosted: January 27, 2012
Yesterday seemed to be my day to visit with hawks. While out running errands a red-tailed hawk flew close to me, showing off his gorgeous colors and beautiful feathers. I did not have the camera with me at the time. To be honest, even if I had I probably wouldn’t have thought to photograph the hawk because I was stunned by his closeness and beauty.
This amazing creature stopped by late yesterday afternoon to have a snack. Judging by the feathers left behind, I think he caught one of the juncos who visit the feeder. I am not sure what kind of hawk this is, but I’m guessing it’s a Cooper’s Hawk. I bet Christina or Pat could help me out with identification.
The hawk must have been fairly hungry as he didn’t seem to mind me hanging around like his own personal paparazzi.
I had a fun day today. An Artist’s Date of sorts. I spent most of the day over in Akron where I had lunch at my favorite Akron restaurant and then spent a couple of hours at the Akron Art Museum. I went to see the Landscapes From the Age of Impressionism exhibit as well as Supernatural, a photography exhibit. It was nice to spend an afternoon soaking up some art.
Outside, it’s been dreary here in the Bogs. A snizzle (snow and rainy drizzle) has been coming down for a good part of the day. It’s cold, but not freezing. We won’t be cross-country skiing this weekend.
Well, that’s about it from the Bogs for today. I’ll leave you with one last look at the hawk. Thank you so much for stopping by. A big thanks to all of you who left comments on yesterday’s post regarding reblogging. I appreciate you taking the time to leave your thoughts on the matter.
Have a fantastic weekend! If you happen to have some sunshine where you’re at, please pass some this way. It would be nice to see it again.
