This hawk spent quite some time swooping over me and my dog. It wasn’t until I got home and enlarged the image that I saw the falconry straps on both legs. Hmmm. It was a big bird weekend for me. Not only did I see a Great Blue Heron and several other hawks, but for the first time ever I saw a raven as I was pulling up to my house. I was so stunned, I didn’t even think to take a pic with my phone before the massive bird flew away.

This Cooper’s Hawk was hanging out in the gutter of a restaurant – picking feathers out and putting them back in. It seemed undisturbed by me, but I didn’t dare get too close in case it was nesting.

As spring arrived last night, I was out with friends celebrating the end of this awful winter and it was snowing again. But, I have seen some signs of spring and will be posting those in the upcoming days. Robins do tend to stay around here in the winter, but I hadn’t seen one or bare ground for quite some time.

Since this has been a bird themed week, I decided to draw a Great Blue Heron from a photo I took years ago. Happy First Day of Spring.

I believe this is a house finch, sitting in a budding oak, singing like crazy on the spring like day.

This bird was eating snow from a huge snow pile and let me get very close. Maybe it was experiencing brain freeze?
I was able to walk my dog in the park, with clear paths, for the first time in a month and a half. It was nice, so back to nature we go.

The eagle tried, but failed, to grab one of the common mergansers floating on the river. Love the cone head on the left.

Yesterday was a warm winter day and my first time seeing an eagle in the urban wild. All good.
