This little guy flew down and perched about 15' away while I worked in the yard today. He even waited patiently while I went inside to get the camera to take his pic, handsome fellow!

Coopers Hawk. Is there by any chance a bird feeder nearby? They eat other birds.

Good captures.

No feeders in that area, but lots of local quail. I've seen them watching our quail before, but typically in the early morning when they are active. I thought it odd he came right to the garden wall this afternoon as if he was expecting me to unearth or stir something (or someone) up for him.

Our retriever didn't see it and walked toward him and stood about 8' away, and the hawk just stayed there watching him. It was completely surreal and wonderful.

Never a dull moment when it comes to wildlife around here!

Default Can you stand another sunset?

They are SOOOO magnificent, every night seems to bring a better show! I took these with my phone on the way home the other evening from the grocery store... it took me about 10 minutes longer as I kept pulling over to snap pics, the clouds looked like they were on fire! Not as impressive here, but hope you enjoy.

Default South of Tucson

Snapped these doves resting on a mesquite fence... the artisan really put some personality into his carvings. Thought they were sweet & the light just right.
