Pic(k) of the Week: Morning Joe

Morning Hawk (01)

What was all that early morning commotion in the backyard, I wondered. Birds seemed to be squawking everywhere, swooping in and out of a maple tree.

Then, I looked up.

A Red-Tailed Hawk(?) had taken a perch in the tree. A swarm of smaller birds were buzzing him, none too pleased by his morning visit. The cacophony became too much for him. He let out his own (very) loud screech, and took off.

All was quiet again, and I poured a cup of morning joe.
