Goshawk and Hobblebush

6 May

This is the first time I came face to face with the gray ghost. I have heard their wings on a few occasions but never actually seen one well enough to identify it as a Northern Goshawk. This one in these photos definately wanted me to see and hearĀ her as she closely swooped & chatteredĀ at me several times in guiding me away from her nest. I didn’t get any photos of her swooping as a goshawk will attack you, so fiddling with a camera during her flights didn’t seem like a good idea.

This young hobblebush (Viburnum alnifolium) also caught my attention.

On this trip the big one didn’t get away, this is an old cod liver oil bottle I found today, click on the photo to see closer his catch.

ciao for now
