Photos I Wish I Had Taken:

My visiting daughter and I were sitting in the computer / garden / bird-viewing room when something large swooped in over the house and landed on the fountain wall.  As soon as it rested we could see that it was a largish, brown and white hawk.  We were both so shocked neither of us could locate a camera although mine was right at my elbow. 

I may have seen this hawk before.  Last year one was sitting on the top of the bird feeder hook for the longest time.  Just couldn't get him in focus. 

Again, on Halloween night this year one was sitting on the top of the utility pole in front of my house.  There was time for my son-in-law to run in and get my camera.  He did a great job of snapping off a few pictures.  This was identified as a Coopers Hawk by a neighbor.  I have no idea if it is the same hawk, though.
