Be still, my heart

Hawk feather
A gift from my husband. He really knows the way to my heart. I love feathers and we think this is a Cooper's Hawk.

I love hawks. And then again, I hate them.... Beautiful shot!

Mary said...

Beautiful! What would cause a hawk to lose a feather? Do they generally moullt, or was it perhaps in a fight? I have no idea...

Oh, this is a beauty indeed. I walked outside last weekend and there were two redtail hawks circling our back woods, flying so low, feet extended. Magnificent birds. Lucky you!
