Back yard tensions

Went outside at my mates house to an early morning mist, (its amazing wiping the dew from the car windows and its actually warm, if I did this in England at this time of year I could easily get frost-bite) anyway there was something slightly different this morning as there was a lot of noise going on. Starting with the Grackles, they were making even more of a racket the normal, and other birds were throwing their lot in.
Common Grackle one of many birds kicking up a fuss

What a mouth full, sunrise just caching its feathers
But the two birds that lead me to  the cause of all the commotion were two Blue Jays--------

First Blue Jay

Second Blue Jay.

And the cause of all the fuss ? I think you can guess----------------

What I think is a Red-tailed Hawk.

Get outta my tree.

I'm going on the chest marking and dark back, but no sign of red tail in my shots (come on Wally help me out please)

So the adventure continues, and where back home I would be asking whats the weather going to do today before making a move, well here the question never enters our heads, lets get going.


  1. Nice captures of that hawk!

  2. Thanks for your comment, much appreciated,


A big thank you to everyone for looking in and leaving their comments, much appreciated, Gordon.
