This is one not so brilliant, but phenomenally determined bird. They started building this nest above our garage earlier in the spring. Sadly, the location is horrible and catches the wind all the time. The nest got blown off at least 4 different times, but they were back within a day and building again.

It seems that whenever I see a hawk, especially one close, I don't have my camera with me. Probably because that is often when I'm in my car.

He came pretty close a couple of times, but not quite as close… Continue reading Hey There! Sup?!
