Hawks

By
Services for Real Estate Pros

While visiting a "Native American Festival" yesterday two hawks arrived and began to chase a squirrel at the time I shot these I didn't know the hawks were part of a bird show. They are allowed to "Free Fly". The squirrel escaped, thankfully!

Nice close ups - I have a family of red tails living on my property.  They are amazing birds that keep the rodent population in check.  Four years ago I seen the very first hawk and then the year after he found a mate....then there were two.  This year there are about 6.  The birds migrate for 3 months during the winter and always return.......I guess they invited some guest this year.   Fantastic hunters.......

Hi Robert, Thanks :) They are incredible hunters, there are alot of them here in Daytona and sometimes they visit me at my office to fish. I don't like when they get the baby birds though..

What is the HAWK a symbol of in Native American lore? I got thinking about it and how this might be a "message " for you...so I looked it up and sure enough I found..."Hawk: The hawk is the great messenger and observer of the sky. "  Now the fact that you saw more than one, TWO, infact!!!, and were allowed to photograph more than one...I would say that is sheer magic for you ...and all of us! THANKS!!!!!!!

janeAnne, The Hawk is one of my Animal Totems also. I have many photo's of them, and am fortunate in the fact that I see them often here. Two live and fly around my new house constantly. Magic, I like that!

janeAnne & Lysa - The Seattle Seahawks are named after the Native American myth. The Seahawk was supposed to be a giant hawk with a 20' wingspan.

These are great! I know my hawks pretty well but these are so dark with red wing borders and legs. I just looked them up and it looks like they have to be Harris' Hawks. I'd love a second opinion. They are only supposed to be found in S Texas and Arizona. My book says if seen out of that range, they have most likely escaped from a falconer. Anyone?

Hi Vicki, They were not escapees, they were part of a learning show at a festival. They are allowed to fly free to show the folks their beauty. The "falconer" had owls, falcons, the two hawks along with an assortment of other birds I can't remember now. They were beautiful!
