"What tumbling cloud did you cleave, Yellow-eyed hawk of the mind, ..." ~ William Butler Yeats
By the time we had returned home from Florida, we had been gone a little over two weeks. When I opened the door to our deck for the first time since we were back, I could tell that our summer hawks had returned in our absence! The raucous screeching was quite something! To-date, I have only seen them at a distance, with the closest being our next-door-neighbor's yard. I believe that the three pictured below are juveniles - and it was a treat to see all three at the same time!
I hope to get some closer (sharper) photos in the future. I'll keep you posted!
