Heard the birds in the tree out front making a ruckus. When I looked out the window, I spotted this Red Tailed Hawk had dropped by the bird bath to cool off a bit. I snapped a few shots through the well weathered glass before I headed out the back to sneak around front for an unobstructed view.
Lucky I did, because apparently my sneaking up skills need some improvement. As I carefully poked my nose around the corner, he flew up into the tree and was gone before I got another glimpse of him.
