So I did. And of course, I brought the good camera in hopes of taking some good photos.
Hubs has lived here 48 years and has never seen a hawk migration like this. Surely it has happened, but no one has seen them in a flock like this. He's such a good man to call me about it. He knows how much I love all-things-nature.
Update: I have learned today that the Swainson's Hawk is also known as the "grasshopper hawk" which makes me a bit nervous. The extension agents are warning that this could be a big "grasshopper year" for us. We had hoppers last year, but not nearly as bad as some. I wonder if God is sending them to us for a reason? Do the hawks know? Here's a blip on the hawk and it's migration and etc.
