not oak, Buteo instead

I’m back from the first weekend of the chest class – and it went very well. Now I have to plane a slew of oak, like the students were doing all weekend.

But the family took a walk on bare earth today, and heard a bunch of loud crows – kept looking up to see what the trouble was…but it turned out to be right in front of us – this juvenile red tailed hawk, sitting on a fence post. We walked right near it, without spooking it. Here’s when I thought I was really close to it –

then the hawk just wouldn’t be spooked. So we left, and when we turned for home – still there.

closer still. I’ve got close to juvies before – for some reason, there’s times when they don’t care about us.

  1. I’ve had that same experience with hawks at times. I think they are disinterested when they’ve just had a big meal! Nice pictures, Peter. Glad your chest class went well too.
