Balcony Visitor

I had an interesting visitor come to our balcony this afternoon. It was a bird of prey. I'm not sure if it was a hawk or a falcon but either way he was quite spectacular. He sat there for quite some time surveying the area for pigeons before finally taking off to catch his lunch.

Jordie eventually noticed something sitting on the balcony but he wasn't quite sure what this was. It certainly wasn't the normal pigeon or crow. He went and sat on the chair near the window and stared but didn't make his normal chattering noises that he makes for the regular birds.

I'm not sure, but it looks like he/she is either still young, or growing in some winter feathers. What a great shot! We get hawks in our yard sometimes, but usually they are moving too fast to take a photo. :)

That's because a bird that is so big might eat a poor little cat like Jordie, he must have known he needed to keep quiet to watch such a marvel. ;-)
