Our Hawk is HUGE!

So I've posted before about the little hawks in our trees here, but it's been a while. Apparently...a long while. Mister Hawk made his presence known today by being more vocal than ever. We heard his mate, then saw her fly above the house into a different tree. When our eyes focused, Mister Hawk was on the telephone pole! (I tell you that telephone pole is seriously trying to get into every picture. See fireworks.)

I think he was eating a little bird, as there were a bunch of little white feathers falling from the top of the telephone pole. I'm just excited I got a couple of good shots! That required running down into the basement for the camera stick then back up for the camera, and outside. I would have taken more but some person in a VERY LOUD suv came barreling around the corner and scared him off.

Wow...great pictures. It is fascinating to watch. We have redtail hawks that nest near here, but not close enough for pictures!
