Even scavengers find time to network

Today while coming back from an appointment I saw several birds in a field.  Looking closely, I could  identify several crows and a hawk. This must have been a scavenger's convention.  I stopped the car rolled down the window and took several shots.

The hawk was closest to me and did not flinch. The crows on the other hand flew away one at a time.

Was it a slow scavenger day?  Was this more of a meet-up just to have fun?  I will never know since I interrupted the gathering.

Jennifer, didn't know that crows and hawks hung out. Hawks usually like "fresh" meat, crows go for stuff like roadkill.

That is a magnificant and beautiful Hawk.  And he doesn't seem the least bit afraid of you.

Endre this was such an unusual scene I had to stop.  I am actually trying to do more face time and loving it.

Good Morning Jennifer -  we can learn a lot about the behavior of birds and how it relates to networking but also teamwork.

Good morning Grant,

So true, there is much to learn from how these birds relate.

Jennifer you were lucky to have your camera on you.  I am surprised the Hawk let you get that close.
