The neighborhood Sharp-shinned Hawk was seen again yesterday in the early evening hours. It was getting a drink out of the neighbor’s bird bath when my husband and I stepped outside onto the front porch (we were on the way to the car to go take some pictures elsewhere). Seeing us, it flew over to one of the large Pine trees on the side of the rainfall water retention pond across the street. After a few moments, it flew off to another part of the neighborhood. I think it had been hunting for lizards, small birds, mice, or small squirrels without success here.
I also saw yet another hawk sitting on a light pole in a parking lot at the edge of our development. With so many small critters around, it is likely that the birds of prey here, do pretty well. I took these pictures last evening, June 2, 2013 at around 6:00-6:30PM. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
