Hawk Eye

Every once in a while I will see a Red-tailed hawk circling around one of the areas in my neighborhood.

I have heard stories of hawks swooping down and plucking up everything from snakes and rabbits, to small dogs and even parrots.

I watched this one hawk while I was jogging and admittedly, I was hoping to see it swoop something up in it's talons. I kept watching it fly around in a circle as if it had an eye on something.

I confess, I'm a little bummed out that the hawk flew away eventually, with no creature in it's talons.

Perhaps next time Mr. Hawk decides to visit our neighborhood I can witness the circle of life. I just hope he stays away from my children.
