The hawk is waiting for my wife to put the cat out for the day. She took this shot to help identify the perp if the cat disappears.

I need to keep a camera with me. We've got so many hawks and falcons around the port, it's not unusuall to see a dove, mouse, or rabbit get whacked by one. Carcusses are always hanging on the fence.
Nice pic.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

  I love raptors!!
 
Took a pic of this little guy a few years ago when The Warden and me went to the Carolina Raptor Center, near Huntersville, NC.
He had his wing amputated from an accident.
 
Here's a white Redtail Hawk.

Awesome hawk...
A couple of years ago, while deer hunting, I had climbed a tree.  A hawk flew into the tree next to me with a ground squirrel.  Another hawk flew into a tree about 15 feet away.  The hawk with the squirrel shook it screeched at the other one several times as if saying "yea, I'm bad, I be EATING..."  After several minutes of posturing, the hawk with the squirrel took off and was shortl followed by the other.  It's why I LOVE to hunt...
Opinion,untempered by fact,is ignorance.

There are some who do not fear death... for they are more afraid of not really living

The owl's not too shabby either.  Excellent

I've seen a few snakes get picked off by hunters like these as well.

Nice pics guys!!  Thunbs Up

My wife and I belong to Rapter Rehab, and we get some cool pics in their newsletter.
Owls are spookey. I saw a huge white owl sitting on a light standard one night at the port. When he flew off it was like watching a ghost.

The is a raptor rehab center in Cheney Ks, a short distance from Cheney lake where the eagles will be coming through in a few weeks. They usually only stay for a couple of weeks then move on south this time of year. They are impressive birds the way they can spot a fish and grab it on the fly.
