Big Hawk-Little Hawk-February 26th 2011

Squirrel eating a nut. The early morning cloudy skies. A BlueJay in flight, on it's way down to get some food.

The sun behind the early morning clouds through the woods. A squirrel's nest deep in the woods and a closer view of it. A squirrel on it's way home.

The Cardinals a a Sparrow sit very still in the bush just before the small hawk came swooping down into it. The hawk missed the birds this time. Lucky for them. The hawk got himself out of the bush and was on the ground behind it for a minute before flying up into a tree.

The small hawk was up above the squirrel's nest. The squirrel sat there unconcerned till a large hawk landed on the top of a Pine tree over to his right. Then he hid himself upside down on the trunk of the tree, while the smaller hawk tried to get himself hid behind the branch he was on.

Here's all three of them. The big hawk, the little hawk and the squirrel.

More photos of them.

A pretty little Tufted Titmouse. The female cardinal and a pair of cardinals.
