Baby Hawk

Baby Hawk in the Distance


   This morning I had a pleasant surprise, the hawks that have been guarding their nest in the trees you see in the far distant middle of the picture, have hatched their baby, I'm not sure how old it is, but, this is the first time it has been near us.  We've been watching them for many weeks and listening to their piercing calls.  The parents are very large and don't come near the house.  This little guy wasn't a bit shy about being photographed.  I caught a glimpse of him as I came around the corner of the house sitting on the hay fluffer.

Even the Hawk Knows it's Lot in Life
   I followed the baby hawk a little ways out the road and stood under the powerline and took it's picture.  It wasn't the least bit afraid of me.  When I looked up at it, I stood in awe of the beauty of God's creation, for even a baby hawk seems to know it's lot in life, for it seemed to take command of the sky on it's first flight out of the nest.

   Hope you have a Blessed day wherever you are, Trisha


  1. What a pretty sight, I'm surprised it let you get so close.

  2. The baby is adorable. Don't get to close though, I bet the parents are watching their baby like a hawk...I couldn't resist!


  3. How lovely to see the baby Hawk so near after watching out for them these weeks.
