Feed The Birds

 
I have multiple bird feeders in my backyard. I reckon the best "feeder" in my yard, for this guy, is the birds I attract with those feeders!

I suspect you are right - but what an incredible visitor to see.

Nice in close shot. He certainly gave you a delightful pose.

I, too, had a hawk come to my bird bath one day... probably checking out the 'snacks'...but, maybe it was just too young to know what was happening... so lovely looking...

Beautiful portrait of this beautiful raptor! Yep, we used to get kestrals in our Oregon yard occasionally and sometimes I worried that I was just providing a cafe for hawks. But most of the little guys knew enough to fly -- and it is all part of nature. As you already know. Always lovely to see you and your wonderful photography pop up on my Feedly.
