Today is Thursday, October 14, 2010


While I was sitting at my desk the other day I saw the reflection of a Red-tailed Hawk on my computer screen.  I turned around to see it sitting right outside my window.  It has been a while since I have  had a hawk visit me.    There was one that often perched on my balcony railing  in the morning but not once this summer was I visited.

The hawks are wonderful to watch as they fly and find a thermal current then  they just soar, high and far.  To see them up close is a great gift.  They are rather regal and it does seem they think we humans are a little lower in importance  then they are in the scheme of things.

I did not know how much I missed seeing this magnificent creature.  These birds are fairly common around here but it is unusual for them to sit on a railing, the roof often, but rarely so close to doors and windows.

I am humbled and thankful that I was blessed with the hawk’s visit.
