Lo and behold, when I was minding my own business doing some craft time and casually looking out of the window, a creature flew by. It perched on a tree about 15 feet away across the window. I was stunned and amazed. The creature was a red-tailed hawk. For the bird to come out of nowhere and hanged out on that particular tree was like a miracle. Yes, we have several birds that live around us: blue jays, crows, seagulls, wild parakeets, cardinals, even some chickadees. But we’ve never seen a hawk close by. We could only saw one or two hawks flying high above when we took a drive. So, you can imagine my excitement over this one unbelievable event. This handsome hawk flew to the back of the house next and stayed there, while I was still giddy about it (smiling big snapping some pictures).
