I moved last November and have really enjoyed all the birds in the new neighborhood. Over the weekend I caught a glimpse of a hawk flying low over our pool with what appeared to be a squirrel.

Yesterday it was patient enough for me to get some pictures.

Thanks, I initially thought broad winged hawk, then looking at the iBird app started to think red shouldered.

I thought I wrote more in my first post.

Thanks. Pics are with an iPhone XS, Meostar S2 spotter and Novagrade attachment. The credit goes to this hawk sitting here a long time 5-10 min. The neighbor put in a new fence after we moved in.

I love my Meopta MeoStar spotter. For the money, I don't think it can be beaten! How far away were you? I would like to know more about the Novagrade attachment too. Great pics!

Sorry for the delay. I was about 10-15 yards out the kitchen window.

Nova grade makes a nice cellphone attachment that tightens better around the eyepiece and it all aluminum construction. I have the single gripper but now would recommend the double grip option.

Saw an osprey fly over yesterday on my walk.
