The Hawk

There's a hawk that lives somewhere near my house. Normally, it stays far away and can only be seen in the trees or on a telephone wire. But, today, it decided to linger on the deck and we were able to snap a couple closeup pictures of it from the bathroom window.

(Edited to add: Oops, it's probably not a hawk. It's a Peregrine Falcon. It's still bad-ass either way. :) )

How crazy and cool is that!!!
Gail would have gone absolutely nuts, as she is a bird person. I'll have to show her this post.

Oh, yeah. My mother was freaking out with excitement. That WAS a once-in-a-lifetime event this far into the city.
