Look Who Came To Visit

This beautiful juvenile Sharp-shinned hawk flew inside our screened patio recently.

Look at the beautiful pattern in the feathers.


After flying around the patio for twenty minutes, my husband put a towel on the hawk and was able to release it back into the wild. Thank goodness!

I believe our cats would have had heart attacks! Beautiful shot of the hawk taking a break from flight.

Wow, what an awesome sight. It looks like the Cooper's Hawk that we had fly into our patio window! Sadly, it did not live!
Blessings,

I believe it was a juvenile Sharp-shinned Hawk. My husband had to pick it up with a towel because the poor thing kept flying into the screen panels. He was stuck on the patio for around 20 minutes and then flew happily away once released.
Thank God! I was so afraid it would get hurt continually flying into the screen.

I am glad the hawk was released back into the wild; I admire hawks and owls and their noble beauty.

What a beauty! I've been seeing a hawk spending time in the field behind my house over that last few weeks. Just amazing.
