My last post featured the little hummingbirds in my yard. This one features the Harris’ Hawks that live in our neighborhood. This was one of them in our pine tree the other day, somewhere we hadn’t seen them before.

As always, the mockingbirds were tormenting him/her~divebombing, heckling, pulling feathers.

  1. I especially like that first shot of the hawk looking head-on into the camera. Interesting the relationship between this hawk and the smaller birds.
