I apologize for the graininess of these photos, some taken through windows and others taken in backlighting or with little natural light. This hawk is puffed up because it was a cold morning. A hot breakfast would do him well.
Later as the sun came up he moved to the side of the house and this was taken not only through a window but a screened window as well! He is a red-shouldered hawk that most often feeds on moles and voles and not little birds. His diving and turning is not as good as theirs is in flight in the tangled woods. Perhaps he is listening for the movement of moles and mice that live beneath the feeders under a layer of spilled seed. He and his partner live in the woods nearby and I have seen them courting in years past.
He came back the next morning and as you can see by his slim silhouette he is not as cold and neither was the morning.
I got a better shot in the late afternoon of the same day. This is their mating season and I can hear his "scree...scree...scree" high over the trees during the day. I look up and see him sailing like a kite. He is either flirting with his mate or just joyous because he feels so sexy. Above he has become a little annoyed at my presence. I am a distraction to his concentrating.
I edited the photo above with a softer, more painterly, effect to pretend that I was able to get closer.
