Default Stopped raining for a while

Went down to a nearby little park on a small river saw what I believe was a Red Tailed Hawk departing, poor shot but the first one I have seen. It started flying as I drove up. I will have to return. The little nut cracker was in the back yard

How green everything looks! Our green has faded to brown, it's getting very boring looking. I'd much rather see all that cool, pretty green. Love the second one, and while I'm pretty clueless as far as birds go, it looks like a redtailed hawk to me.

Lovely shot of the squirrel ! I think an 8x10 portrait crop would make it even better.

Sure looks like a red tail to me! Lots of action in that shot, despite the problem with all the branches (if only the birds would pose where we want them!!)

Wonderful green & reflections at the water, and really cute squirrel photo too!

Thanks all, I am hoping this is the hawk's home area I plan on going back to look for him, now for 1 more clear day then 6 more of rain, this feels more like April. I am spoiled with all the wildlife ignoring me on the Florida golf courses, no such luck here in Mi.
