Mandy - it's tough to see hawks take other birds, especially if we witness it.
Kay - We'll keep trying, right?
Lana - thanks friend!


Great shot!


Beautiful! I failed yesterday to get an overhead photo of a beautiful Swallow-tailed Kite. But I am determined to do better with the next raptor I 'm lucky enough to have a chance at! I'll follow your "practice!" advice. This is a great blog.

Beautiful photo! I love hawks and look forward to seeing them whenever I can even though they take my song birds on occasion.

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
