Cooper’s Hawk

Cooper’s Hawk

My hibernation season is officially over. Two warm days in a row coaxed the camera and me out of the house. I walked at Lake Lawson Lake Smith city park, and was in the right place at the right time to see this Cooper’s Hawk–just before the crows served an eviction notice.

This reminds me to do my neck stretches.

Friday’s Hunt v2.15

Friday’s Hunt

Hurricane Matthew has kept us busy this week as we tried to prepare for the unexpected. Watching. Waiting. Praying for those of you to the south of us who still bear much of the storm’s wrath, may you and your loved ones be safe. We have heavy rain, expecting 8-12 inches with 60 mph wind gusts; a flash flood warning now in effect. Internet is spotty today, makes trying to post a test of my character! 

I apologize for not getting to visit your blogs this week, hopefully this week will be better.

This week we’re looking for Starts with O, Week’s Favorite, and Eyes.

is for Overcast sky.

My Week’s Favorite (the only picture I’ve taken this week) is the Encore Azalea.

These were the first Eyes that came to mind–a Cooper’s Hawk–who keeps an eye on the backyard birds.
