One of the things I do love about where we live is the wildlife.
I love the tarantulas. See my latest pics HERE. So Cute!!
I love seeing the coyotes and bobcats - no pictures to share as they are too quick for me.
The rattlesnakes scare me to death - no pictures, I'm too busy screaming. Although here are some pics of another snake HERE
I adore all the wild bunnies - see HERE
But one of most majestic of the desert wildlife are the hawks. A couple days ago, I was sitting in my little office, which looks out onto the front of our house. We have a few very big old mesquite trees. And a wonderful visitor came to hang out for a while. I took a LOT of pictures, hope you enjoy them. He (she?) never took his eyes off of me. I think he was trying to decide if I was too big to eat. I talked softly to him the whole time, and he just sat there. I walked away before he flew away.
He's probably about 2 feet tall.
I think he is a Harris Hawk, perhaps a juvenile (due to his spotted breast).
