Hawk

Well, first of all, it's official --- not only are we having a drought, but we're having unusually warm temps. The good news is, storms moved in again from the north early this morning, although I'm still baffled as to why we're having storms move in from the north. The bad news is, there's some areas close by where drought conditions have hit extreme. Let's hope it's over soon.

Second, Mr. Hawk is back again. Last spring, I suspected hawks were nesting on my land because a hawk dive-bombed me one afternoon. Still, it's a hard thing to tell --- there's hawks everywhere here and I haven't yet found the nest.

However, given this is twice in a row I've found a hawk perched on the falling down fence around my yard, I think it's safe to guess they've got this place staked out as their territory. Which also explains the fight I saw between the hawks and some scissortails a few days ago.

So here's more hawk pics --- bear in mind I'm shooting these on a camcorder through a window and pulling photos off the footage. All the foilage behind the hawk is trees in my hollow --- it's stll pretty densely forested down there, but gorgeous. I'll be doing some clearing of it soon enough.

Awesome. Except for the getting dive-bombed. Beautiful bird.

Are you pulling those off of a VCD? I havent figured out how to pull stills off of one yet-- is there a special program?

Leila, I'm working on a Mac and have a program called iMovie. Essentially, I run digital film through the computer and "import" clips, the clip the clips and convert to jpg.

I haven't figured out how to do VCDs yet, although I need to. I have mega-gigabytes of footage on the puter!!!!
