| a Peek at This and That »
this is the normal morning sight
we heard an unfamiliar call and looked up...wondered if he had his eye on the squirrel that was running around
he flew off but landed just a few feet away...to join mom? They sat here for quite some time
before leaving to start their day
join voices with the locals
It's Friday...so joining Rebecca and Haiku my Heart

A Pair of them! wow, what a great start to the day. We have the yellow finches visiting our coneflowers and blackeyed susan's know too. It's fun to imagine bouncing on one of those flower heads and having lunch or something.

Those are some awesome photos. Are they hawks? Falcons? I'm not good at identification, but they sure are awesome. They would catch my eye if I was near. Good job!

Harris Hawks? We have them here as well. In fact it amazes me how nature and wildlife thrive in the midst of a metropolis.

Sunshine colored flowers with birds to match what more delightful way to greet the day! x

Hello Steph, I have the same sun flowers in my yard! I love them and how they bring the little finches to dip and sway on their tall slender stalks... the photos of the hawks are incredible. Did you look up (google) what the medicine of hawk is? I always do that when an animal/bird/critter pops into my awareness. Loved your haiku capturing this morning full of sound! XO

Oh I love hawks!
Especially because they eat squirrels.
Nature is incredible, isn't it?
These are some wonderful photos♥♥

Many urban dwellers miss the wildlife around them. Glad that you don't!
