We were out in the garden today
I was planting some basil seeds and my hubby said look in the tree. lol after looking at the wrong trees I finally saw it and headed for the camera.
We thought it was a hawk but seems to have a redhead so now we are not sure



this was one I took of Lola hanging out under the bird feeder lol it is almost as if she is thinking "if I lay here real quite the bird will come and play with me"

Default Don't Lie Down, Karla

That "hawk" looks suspiciously like a vulture; most likely a brown or turkey vulture.

It is a vulture.
I think a turkey vulture, no doubt Ellie can say for sure which kind.
We see a lot of those guys around here. They are kinda nasty looking but perform valuable duties.

LOL! Thanks Cil for the vote of confidence, it is a turkey vulture - it has a red rubbery head like a turkey's. Black vultures have black heads and are a bit smaller.

I rather enjoy watching them. They're the garbage men of the skies. There's a buzzard roost not far from my house that sometimes has 50 or 60 birds perched in it.

I know what you mean. My bird feeders are right outside my office window. They provide so much entertainment for me when I'm resting my eyes from the computer screen. There's something different happening out there every day.
