Sitting quietly in the sunroom, girls in school, youngest boy still asleep, something large and moving caught my eye. I moved to the window and saw this massive hawk-bird staring at me. We knew there were a few of these hanging around the cul-de-sac, but I’ve never seen one this close. He hung out there for a few minutes, until my zoom lens clicked against the window pane and he spread his wings and flew quickly away. A short visit, but one I was oddly thankful for: Creation swooping down to say hello.
