Unless……We Get A Little Crazy

Miracles will happen
As we speak
But we’re never
Gonna survive …unless
We get a little crazy-
Crazy- Seal


Hawks  arrive unannounced… my lived long life.  When three show up, two Harlan’s and a Red tailed on one morning walk, chances are they arrive  and bestow with a screech, glide,  and potent stare,…. a feeling of optimism, encouragement, wonderment, and change, …which I am pleased to share a glimpse of with you. A most excellent way to begin the day.

  1. Thank you so very much. I just returned from morning walk where I saw one of the hawks again, so close and just staring at me. …alas the morning I decided not to take the camera! Always great to hear form you.

  2. Yes, I remember being in NYC and fairly sure I heard a hawk calling from overhead on a very busy street. My city friend told me about the raptors nesting up high over the buzz of the city. Amazing.


  3. So far so good from the birders. I enjoy them whatever their designation. Taking and now sharing these pictures is just marvelous. Thank you for your kind words. All my best to you, Joey…have an excellent weekend.

  4. They are magnificent birds, JoHanna, and magnificently fierce! I see one occasionally drop by for take-out, leaving with a squirrel or mouse. Bale eagles and osprey also nest in our area. Thanks for sharing your ‘peak.’ –Curt

  5. You got great shots of them! We have some hawks around here and I never get a good shot. This is why, although I believe we have red-tails, I can’t be certain. I posted some pics once and people liked to have strangled one another fighting over identification. 😦
    Beautiful photos, well done!

  6. So do I. Crossing Oklahoma by trusty pickup one autumn, my best friend and I saw 52 hawks in one day. It truly was just magic. Thank you for your kind words and comments, Loisajay. Always such a pleasure to hear from you.

  7. ‘a little crazy’ is such a good thing. The hawks are wonderful, Johanna. I love to be driving down the highway, looking up and seeing them soaring overhead. Magnificent creatures!
