Feathers on Friday for 11/4

A Hawk and His Shadow

Happy first Friday of November!  This week, I went a little artsy.  This is the male Red-shouldered Hawk in my yard perched in the sun.  It didn't last for long but his shadow was cast on the tree behind him.  His coloring goes perfect with the foliage right now.  Don't you think? Have a great weekend and enjoy the fall weather!  Happy Birding!

The Squirrels and Hawks Part 3

Well, the Grey Squirrels are at it again. It's like a moth to a flame.  It is just baffling to me why they harass the Red-Shouldered Hawks so much.  Is it just pure curiosity? Or some sort of smell?  Or some sort defense mechanism like mobbing that birds use?  Whatever it is, it has made for some interesting photos.  

The death stare didn't work.

Finally, after being repeatedly harassed, the female Red-Shouldered Hawk flew off to another tree to get some peace.
