I’m so thankful that our miniature pinscher was inside snoozing when this visitor came by. The trees are clear of leaves, so there was good visibility to see that the tree suddenly acquired something additional. The hawk was big, so it’s probably a female redtail in winter plumage.
It was facing our neighbor’s yard until it heard my camera, so I can’t be sure if it was hunting rabbits (of which our neighbor has plenty) or if it was hunting a miniature pinscher. Earlier this summer we had to keep him locked up because there were an unusual amount of activity over our yard from a pair of hawks who were living in our subdivision.
