Lovely Jan! Much better than what my bird in tree pictures usually turn out like.

Do you know what kind it is?

I missed this one! Good thing it was waiting for me today. I had the same question Chester did...

Chester's Mom and Life with Dogs,

So sorry to be slow in answering this question. . . been away from my Blog for a while.

The bird in the photo is a hawk, although I can't say for sure what specific kind. It's a VERY rare occasion to see a hawk near or in our yard, and when there is one, it seems like all the other backyard birds go into hiding!'

This guy spend several hours on that same branch, just sitting quietly and apparently surveying ours and our neighbors' yards for potential prey. Beautiful, yet a bit scary in a way too. . . . .
