WAITING FOR MOLLIE

This Coopers Hawk
was sitting in the tree across the street just waiting...?
He follows us around on our walks quite often.




I think he has found out where Mollie lives..
Wouldn't she be a tasty little morsel ?




I often hear him and see his shadow flying overhead..



There has been a squirrel around here for several years
with almost no tail.
I see him often. 
Sometimes he looks like a rabbit until you see him run.
Could it be a result of a hawk attack !!

Different day..different tree..same bird ?




This time he's in the back yard and has been there for almost
two hours..I feel like I should take him a mouse.
This little squirrel,
who is hanging on by his "nails", had best be careful..
I know the hawk can see him.


 

 Robins  have been here all winter..
Taken thru my front door and storm door..Sorry it's a little foggy.




And he's here again...Day three.
He must be finding something to eat somewhere nearby.




I know he was there at least 3 hours.
I saw him leave but I don't know when he came....

 



Looks like he's got his eye on something...

Hello Missy, your hawk is awesome.. I do feel sorry for the little birds, while the hawk hangs around..Great shots. Enjoy your day!

We see those here once in awhile too. You have robins all winter? Not here. They should be coming back soon, however. That is always a joy to see.

Hawks are amazing, aren't they? Real predators and they can dive so fast it is amazing.
I can't believe you have had robins all winter. We won't see any until at least mid-April (if then).
Hope you have a good day. Hope that hawk isn't watching YOU! xo Diana

I wouldn't like that hawk hanging around! We had one here for awhile and that hawk was FOR SURE keeping an eye on Snickers. Makes me hesitate to have her be outdoors on her leash to sit in the sun!

SUN. . . .none of that around here . . , it has been snowing for days! Another 12-18 predicted! YIKES!

That hawkeye is watching, always watching.

I like watching the hawk. Keep Mollie on a leash! Ann

Oh my, keep Mollie close. Really a pretty bird, but yikes! When the Robins return we know it is Spring. I've got my eye out for them! I've got Spring fever, bad!!

Tessa~ Here there be musing said...

our birds have disappeared, and we are wondering if we have a hawk, somewhere near? we haven't seen one, but the birds are gone....

I don't like hawks...

I know, it is simply part of nature. all life, feeds on life. we do too. even if one were to eat only dry leaves, we would still be feeding on something that had been alive.

it's the way, things have evolved.

but we don't have to think about it, because someone does the "hard part," for us.

Well, that's some hawk. Cool to watch but threatening as well. Hope he moves on to more suitable hunting grounds and not in your neighborhood. I still love the photos though.

Kelly Deal said...

Beautiful hawk! I feel bad for the little critters it feeds on, but I guess that's nature. Lovely photos!

Susie said...

Missy, Your hawk photos are wonderful. I love the beauty of the hawk, but I hate when they eat little birds. But that is nature. Thank you for the prayers for my brother. He is just resting, waiting for the swelling to leave his brain. Bless you,xoxo,Susie

Maybe he has his eye on the squirrel!

Nice set of shots.

Hello Missy, thank you so much for linking up your Hawk post. Have a happy day and week ahead!

I love to see hawks and your photos are just great! The birds seem to be right at home on the feeder.

Marie said...

Your Coopers is beautiful! Rather brazen, I think, sticking around so long thinking about making a snack of the dog! :-)

Como o falcão é lindo, Missy.

Tão majestoso!!

Mas, fique atenta em Mollie.

Pode ser perigoso.

beijinhos,

I wouldn't doubt that the hawk has his eye on Missy. We have a Coopers in our yard a lot, and I figure when he's around that's why I don't see any birds. But one day I saw him and he sat in one bush quite visible, and and the mourning doves were quite comfy sitting in their usual spot close by. Maybe they knew he had just eaten? Great shots of him ... strange that his eye is red in the first set and yellow in the second set.
