Bird of Prey

Unexpected,
this encounter –
piercing golden eyes
a coat of mottled feathers,
a new visitor to our river –
not sure who is more startled.

(Smaller than the bald eagle, this bird of prey was perched riverside.  Suspect it is a red-tailed hawk.   For Granny Shot It’s Bird of the Day.)

    1. They are common here too, and there are many variations. I hadn’t seen this particular one before, but that doesn’t mean much really. Thanks Betty. The river never fails to surprise me.
