Close Encounters of the Bird Kind

Perfectly perched on a bare horizontal branch. The setting looked like a set, but it was completely natural. The bird was completely unafraid and, in fact, darn right curious about me.

I've never been that close to a non-captive bird. It's possible it was a rehab bird and is rather used to people (it was banded).

What a rush to spend a full 10 minutes watching and photoing this magnificent hawk!
