Hawk Watch

It's getting noisy at my house. I open the door on warm(ish) mornings and am greeted with a chorus of tweets: house finches, goldfinches, mocking birds. So nice to feel the world is waking up. This morning I took a walk and spotted this red-tailed hawk, who is a neighbor. Of course, I hadn't brought my camera, and knew that if I went to get it, he'd be gone. So I walked for twenty minutes and found him still there when I finished. Went upstairs, grabbed my point-and-shoot, and found him again. He sat and posed for me for quite a while, seemingly content to sit in a tree and listen to the sounds of spring.

Now, back to those taxes! With a smile.
