band- tailed pigeon:
can't really see the banded tail, huh. He-He.
I have a lot more pics but it would take centuries to post them all so I will stop with the photos and continue. I wrote a composition on a red-shouldered hawk I was watching the other day and here it is:
The hawk: A composition
There he stood: a perfect example of grace and beauty, just standing there with his head arched and his eye ever moving.
There he stood: in an old, gnarled oak tree with it's branches spreading out every which way well the twig-like wood shot off from each branch intertwining itself with another.
There he stood: with his black and white tail feathers which on close examination prove to have one of the most intricate patterns ever created with close resemblance to a spider's web, his perfectly curved beak and sharp eyes that pierce you deep into the soul, not even mentioning the red and black feathers of ever-changing shades as they glisten in the sunlight and then of course his menacing talons which are ready at any moment to spring upon a helpless chicken or mouse and carry it away.
There he flew: with his strong wings spread wide and flapping up and down, silently, gliding away across sunlit skies.

So, if you are a bird-watcher like me there is this awesome thing going on worldwide called the Great Backyard Bird count. Here is the link to the site. and if you are a bird photographer there is also a contest for that on the site which you should check out. :)

I'm glad you stayed long enough to hear me ramble about birds. I hope you enjoyed! Please tell me if you did. oh yeah, and Josiah told me I could only do this post if I told you to check out his page Josiah Jolly Stuff and comment.
