HAWKS NEED TO EAT TOO

I know this beauty was looking for birds to eat but he is part of the scheme too. Usually when the hawks are around there is not another bird in sight in the yard. I'm not educated enough to tell if this Red Tailed Hawk was a male or female but it was gorgeous. Often I see these big raptors in the yard or flying high above our woods.

This day I was lucky enough to have my camera close by and was able to snap this picture.The perch it choose wasn't 25 feet away from our deck.  I wish the Hawks would grab a few of the pesky squirrels that are wrecking my garden! I'm sure they do get a few and mice too. Yes, they get some chickens but as close as I am to town I rather doubt that chickens are on the menu for our Hawks.
