Wild Bird Wednesday


Hawk perched on one leg on top of a street light in a parking lot. Linking with Wild Bird Wednesday.

You catched him very well against the blue sky.

Oh, you were quick on the trigger on this one...super shot. I don't think I've ever got a decent photo of a hawk. It certainly is a wild bird!

Tanya Breese said...

great view point for him!

I never tire of hawks. We have many varieties up here and I'm always so happy to see them.

Great capture!

Hawks seem to have adapted well to civilization! Very nice photo.

Not sure I have ever seen a real hawk in the last twenty years!

I'm like VP. We don't get to see many anymore even in the countryside. All the more pleasure to see one here!

William Kendall said...

This one's quite distinctive up there. Nicely captured!

As the king of the city.

I am surprised that VP and Ciel say that hawks are uncommon over there. I see them all the time in southwest Florida. Are they common in Tallahassee?

Carletta said...

Always sad their habitats are slowly being encroached upon but always a wonderful encounter to find one. :)
Nice catch!

Cezar and Léia said...

He is wonderful and it's a great position there to see everything around. Great shot,well done!
I'd like to thank you for your words in my blog and also in our facebook page. I'm not blogging so much because I'm studying again. :)

Great photo. I love birds of prey. They are so elegant.

EG CameraGirl said...

I wonder what the hawk was waiting for. Something tasty must have been close by.

Lois said...

They are very common in Tallahassee Jack. I see them in my yard all the time. I can always tell when one is around because all the squirrels and smaller birds disappear.

Roan said...

I'm always on the lookout for hawks, but rarely see one.

Always a good day when you see a bird of prey!
