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.
