The Resting Hawk
He was so big that I was able to see him very clearly, even though he was so far away. This time I saw him better than the camera did. The only reason I'm even showing you this not so good photo is because I wanted you to be able to at least see something.
As soon as I saw this hawk land, the forest seemed to come alive! I heard all sorts of birds begin chirping and squawking. There was one kind in particular that sounded exactly like a squirrel. None of the other animals seemed to want to welcome this big bird into the forest. Imagine that!
None of this lasted for very long though. When I moved to get a little closer for a better shot, the hawk jumped into the air and flew off to my left. He quickly soared over the trees and was soon out of the forest. I hoped he would stop again, or at least circle back, but he was gone. I guess he was just stopping for a rest.
