37|2013 Lazy Circles in the Sky (September 30 – October 6, 2013)
Within a few minutes after Keith left the house he returned to let me know of a photo opp in our neighborhood. I’m not particularly fond of birds and know very little about them so I had to do a bit of researching to determine what this one might be. Based on that information, I think this is a juvenile Cooper’s Hawk who was probably making lazy circles in the sky before he stood in this pile of feathers.
