To be honest. I haven't seen

To be honest. I haven't seen a good post like this in a year now. And seeing this post now, ahh, it really pleasures me. Thanks a lot for this post.

I live in the southernmost

I live in the southernmost part of Columbus, Ohio, but the mighty Scioto veers very close to the main stem down this far. As I stand at the bus stop up there of a morning, often there will be a Hawk. They are usually singles, and I am captivated by them. They soar so, the slow and graceful glide, surely the currents above the water drafting, but if you see a winging at all, it's just a weeee tip of the end feathers, flip! -- and whhhoooooooooooosh...! Off in another direction. Some times I can follow them all the way up to work. I love that we travel the same path. I just love them; they are very powerful to me.

I just saw a young hawk in the trees by my house on the Central Coast in California. He was making the silliest squeeky noise. I guess he was just learning how to screech.

People tell me I was lucky he did not scalp me.

I live here in Ventura, Ca. and I take video when I here the screech of a hawk just across harbor blvd. over the big eucalyptus trees. Olivas Adobe is a great place to see hawks, owls and other birds. I go there often and love it there, it's very special. As i'm walking around taking pics of hummingbirds, a raven flies by sometimes. With a lot of practice I will soon get a good picture of him/her!
