February 26, 2016 Hawk

This afternoon as I was at the computer editing images, I heard a hawk's cry right outside my window. I kept hearing the cry until I looked outside and saw a Red Shouldered Hawk about 20 feet up in a maple tree. He(?) waited long enough for me to grab my 7D Mark II and 100-400 mm lens and go outside. Even as I stood at the base of the tree he perched and posed as I took dozens of shots before getting bored and flying off.
