This morning a Harris's Hawk came calling in our yard. I took some pics through the window and then stepped outside. While I didn't approach it, it didn't mind me slipping out the sliding glass door to get a better views. Here are a couple of shots of it perched on our back wall:
I unfortunately had to head out the door and couldn't stay to watch it take flight. It is a beautiful bird. Hopefully someday soon I will get the chance to catch it again.
