Catching up with backyard visitors.

.

Just some random photos I cleared off my camera the other day.

.

This was the last sighting of our blue eyed fawn from last year.

.

.

Photos were taken in January and though we’ve seen some full grown deer this month, it’s hard to tell if he’s among them.

Can you see the visitor in this pic?

.

.

It’s a Red Tail Hawk who uses our backyard as his hunting ground.

.

.

Close proximity to the bird feeders makes for some tasty dove nuggets.

.

.

He’s a young hawk and is still mastering his technique.

While it’s hard to see piles of feathers litter the ground, these birds of prey really are fabulous creatures. And if he swoops down and claims a certain red rodent….. I can’t say I’ll be heartbroken.
