Chirpa

Not the most handsome creature but still pretty cool. Chirpa is juvenile Eastern Screech Owl. He was no bigger than 6 inches tall and won’t get any larger. He is still growing in his adult feathers.

Nev The One Eyed Hawk

He can still see much better than I can. It was nice to finally get up close and personal with Red Shouldered Hawk after chasing them around my yard for the better part of a year with no real luck. Apparently he had an infection in his right eye that eventually got to the point where removal of it was necessary. Still a magnificent creature.

Mississippi Kite?

I took this photograph early Friday morning of last week. Initially I thought it might be a Red Shouldered Hawk because they are always around the neighborhood but then I notice the coloring was different and it let me get a lot closer. After a little internet search I am going to guess Mississippi Kite but I could be wrong.

Day 21: Stormy Weather

“After a storm comes a calm”

-Matthew Henry

Yesterday we had some pretty crazy weather and so did many other folks on the east coast. Some areas received snow while we endured some crazy thunderstorms. At one point in the afternoon Nancy informed me that she was seeing quarter sized hail where she works.

When I left my office for the day there were rivers all over the place that shouldn’t have been there. It was also unseasonably cool. Anyway I love crazy weather like that…except for the hail. Here is an image from yesterday afternoon when the weather began to clear up.

On different note, the neighborhood Hawk was back this morning. I still can’t get close enough to take a decent photo. He sees everything but here is my best attempt from this morning.

Today was the third and final day of the quote challenge. I appreciate Tippy Tales challenging me and I propose that SATechs and The Nighthawk Project complete the same challenge.

Have a great weekend!
