Broad-Winged Hawk

I almost missed this one a few minutes ago when a squirrel actually came and chased the hawk away!  I was inside with my little digital camera when I saw him while sitting at the computer.  This is as close as my little camera could zoom through the window and I dared not go outside for fear of missing him altogether!  He is a Broad-winged Hawk: they measure 13 1/2" to 19" in length.  I could see his broad banded tail and colors and his bill was shorter than some of the larger hawks. I am always so thrilled when I see one of these creatures!  The novelty never wears off for bird lovers!
