Nature and Feline Friday

 Nature Friday host LLB Gang  and Feline Friday  host Comedy Plus

On Thursday December 2nd we took a wonder trek up and down the trails that surround the NC Museum of Art. Just as we were coming to the top of a very long hill I spotted something red in a tree. 

It was a balloon in the shape of #2.  I'm guess an escapee from a 2 year old bday party.  Then just to the left, I noticed a rather large vertical white object.  

As we walked toward the tree, I saw the bird's head move.
Oh.  I put the zoom on my camera and snapped away hoping I was catching
a beautiful critter of nature.

I knew it was a hawk by the shape of the head.  When loaded the photos on my computer I was truly amazed at how good the photos from my 10+year old Nikon caught the grand raptor.

I asked Gigi Google for a photo of a hawk with a white chest.  At first, I thought it 
was a broad tail hawk; however, they don't have feathery legs.. next guess was a red tail hawk.  To be sure I sent the photo to Hootin' Anni my avian expert.

She confirmed it was a red tail hawk
She also added that it was an adult.  Juveniles do not have feathers on their legs.
Remember when you are out and about keep your eyes open

There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Angel Madi
also thought the same thing. We became accustomed to her look of disapproval and at the same time very thankful she forgave our huMANness.
Having thumbs was our saving grace.
