The hawks were keeping such a fuss when I arrived home flying again checking out various trees. I take this as a good sign of their intent of nesting near by. The other birds and squirrels did not much care for the hawks so close and fussed continually.
One finally rested on a limb for quite a bit of time enjoying the sunny spot that had good views. It seems most of the time they fly when you start trying to get to a good vantage point for pictures but today this one was very cooperative.
The last shot was disappointing. I had made up my mind to stand in one location until it took flight. I was hoping for a good flight shot. Oh well, another day. The camera chose to shift focus to focus on one of the pesky in the way branches and not the bird.
