Not a pet - but neat to see.

My roomie got these shots of a hawk on our front porch railing in December 2011. These aren't great shots, but they were taken through a double glass window, screen, and porch banisters. They came out pretty good considering.

I have never seen a hawk around here before. Our best guess is he/she is a Red Shouldered hawk. Amazing bird! and amazing he/she was here!

Beautiful bird!! I have a soft spot for hawks, even though they terrorize our feeder birds when they're around. Did yours only visit for that one day?

dmc,if you have a bird-feeder,he'll most likely come back.
In the winter I have a Hawk here every day,looking for a Pigeon-treat..they are magnificent birds,I just wish they would not have to kill"my"Pigeons to live.

We have two big bird feeders very close to where the hawk was perched. It is scary for my birdies, but we haven't seen him again since. He might be lurking somewhere.
