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 😦

Thanks for viewing and you can zoom in for a closer look. Comments are always welcome.  M 🙂

Insulators

          Some twenty-five years ago, my carrier often took me on the road, occasionally providing time and places to explore. In this case it was a few miles east of Wellsville, NY – Allegheny County, just a few miles north of the central Pennsylvania boarder. I walked along an old, rickety railroad track that had seen better days, and captured these images, and a souvenir hidden in the Brush with a long ago downed and forgotten telegraph pole.
