The birdfeeders and patio were still deserted. It had been something like half an hour. And so I was  sort of paying attention, because that silence means all the songbirds know something’s up.

I looked up again to see that magnificent striped tail and wide wingspan sailing easily, breezily across right in front of the awning across from where I sat, swooping up at the last near the redwood tree.

The best sighting of my Cooper’s hawk (scroll down slightly) I’ve had in months.

Not only cool that you saw the hawk, but also that you have Redwood trees! I want to see one of those, too!

Goes to show that when you pay attention to details, you could have a pleasant reward. 🙂

I’m glad you could be there to enjoy it!

Wow! You have certainly got your bird-waiting-watching sense trained. How exciting!

Absence makes the heart grow fonder, indeed!
