The craziness of a life filled with dogs, birds and a family.

A wing and a prayer
Last night we had a visitor. A good sized red tailed hawk. I think it was a youngster, based on its rather confused state. We have lots of red tails in Minnesota and you often see them sitting on the light poles by the freeway, but not too often in the middle of the city in my yard. He appeared flying very low, low enought that I could feel the draft from his wings as he flew over my head. He hung out for a while on the overhead wires, letting me take his picture a few times. then gave me a nod as if to say goodbye and off he went. He was rather calm, but just his presence makes me wonder if he is OK? I hope so.
Sorry the pictures are dark, it was a very grey overcast day.
