A surprise visitor!

Yesterday, looked out my kitchen window and here was this beautiful hawk sitting on my next-door neighbor's fence.  He looked so big, I could just feel his weightiness.

He sat and posed a while, and I quickly emailed the pictures to my son-in-law, whom I knew would be able to identify this guy.  Yes!  He's a "Northern Goshawk", probably on his way south.  Actually, he's a juvenile with the barred tail.  I was so excited that he chose us to see him and I want to read all about him.

What a beauty!  What a gift!  Safe travels.....

Wonderful that he took some time to pose for you.
