Outdoor Wednesday

We spotted this huge nest in a neighbor's tree and went home and got our camera with the zoom lens so we could get a closer picture. The lady that owned the home passed away and it is currently up for sale. Her daughter had a tree trimming company to come out and trim the huge trees around her driveway and all of a sudden they stopped and left. We haven't seen them since. One day, Hubby and I were walking and he spotted the huge nest. At first he thought it was a falcon, but now he thinks that it is a hawk. Does anyone know? This particular one looks like a baby, but we're not quite sure. Please visit Susan over at A Southern Daydreamer for more outdoor pics.


  1. Wow, cool shot of the raptor and nest. Great photos!

  2. What a nest! Very impressive, must be a hawk. Beautiful tree to, it's too bad there are not owners to enjoy it.

  3. Great shots! It looks like it may be a young red tailed hawk. So glad they did not harm the nest when they started trimming the trees.

    Are those little beaks to the left of the picture (to the right of the hawk's feet)?

  7. I enjoyed your outdoor scenes today. I love seeing old trees. You tend to wonder about the life of it. I guess I have missed your post in the past, as I know I would remember your pretty face.

  8. I would have to get out my bird guide book to be sure, but you can probably tell which by the beak and the iris color. Whichever, it is a fabulous find. It looks so regal posing atop the nest!

  9. I wonder why the trigger happy aka chain saw people stopped. May be they saw some bird spirit.

  10. Great pictures..I think it looks like a hawk to me. We have lots of them in my neck of the woods.Here it is illegal for the tree trimmers to disturb a nest like that, so that's why they probably left.
