Okefenokee Hawk


I had a chance to spend a few minutes visiting the very outskirts of the Okefenokee Swamp when I was in Georgia. I've got plenty more pictures of that to share with you, but first I want to show you this red shouldered hawk I saw on the way into and out of the park. I spotted him on my way in, but I didn't get the chance to stop. Thankfully, he was still there when I left, although he'd moved. And as I watched him, he moved from one dead tree to another.

The second time I spotted him he let me get a little closer, but not much. And this time he decided he'd had enough and flew far enough away that I couldn't see him any more. Oh, well.
