In Awe of His Majesty


Earth Day is tomorrow and in honor of that, look who God brought to visit us in our backyard? Perched atop our fence was this beautiful hawk...any idea what kind of hawk it is? Or maybe it is another species of bird...

  1. Breathtaking!

    Looks like a Red Tailed Hawk to me, but I'm not a hawk expert.

    What a wonderful blessing to see such splendor.

    Thank you for sharing.

  7. How beautiful. We have had hawks, or falcons--I can never tell--in our trees behind us, but never this close.

  10. I am pretty sure that is an Oh-my-gosh-that-bird-is-huge-and-can-totally-peck-your-eyes-out-if-you-go-outside Hawk. I think they are indigenous to five mile radius to me.
