Look who swung by on our final day here in the high desert.  It was our young Sharp Shinned Hawk for our last dinner.

    Everyone has to eat. A new hawk for me, we have red-tails here, but never get them this close to take pics. Nature. It’s a Good Thing. Last day? Where to next?

    What’s it eating ????

    We have red-tails here, too, Fort. They are huge. They fly overhead way up high. When their shadows go over our yard it looks like the shadows of big planes. I realize it is the cycle of life, but I hate it when they are hunting the squirrels that I feed. I live in Arlington, TX. Where are your red-tails?
    I have never seen this kind of hawk before, Bob. This hawk looks like it has a band on its leg! Has it been banded?
    Charles, he looks like he is eating a plucked bird to me! I guess he already pulled all its feathers off.

    Fort, we are presently in San Bernadino, having some repair work on the RV taken care of. From there we will head toward Redding and Northern Cali.

    Charles, it’s eating a Mourning Dove, that it had capture. The hawk stripes the bird of it’s feathers before consuming.

    Hi Munford, it’s a Sharp Shinned Hawk and yes it was banded.
