Backyard: A Red-tailed Hawk Visits – TWICE

This Afternoon, (12/20/19) – Our Backyard

Below, …a little over a week earlier, this impressive hawk (that had been perched on the same branch as above,) was spooked (by me!) into moving a bit deeper into the trees.DSC_0284 2 DSC_0282

Last image above: Probably about two years old, hawk-eye started acting silly, like any two year old, and in seconds, flew away.  Thirteen days later he returned, as captured  in the first two pictures at the top. 

Thanks to Disperser Tracks for catching my initial error in ID’s this as an Eagle. Live and learn! M 😦

Promises, promises.

Within the invisible digital world we play in, the past three weeks have been frustrating as about 35,000 select archived images appeared to have been lost. As of this morning, however, all have been recovered. 🙂 As promised (in a comment on my last post,) below is the “missing” 1987 capture of the now long gone Swiss Army Knife at the Museum of Contempoary Art, Downtown Los Angeles.
