One of our neighborhood hawks that likes to hang around our bird feeders. He kept trying to hide his eyes behind that small branch, perhaps thinking I then couldn't see him.

"This bird was named after the naturalist William Cooper, one of the founders of the New York Academy of Sciences. Other common names; big blue darter, chicken hawk, hen hawk, Mexican hawk, quail hawk, striker and swift hawk." Wiki

Hope your weekend is off to a wonderful start!

Go Zags!

Titling this Raccoon just didn't work for me so went with the mask....

Caught this mother of 4 in our front yard.

The word "raccoon" was adopted into English from the native Powhatan term, as used in the Colony of Virginia. It was recorded on John Smith's list of Powhatan words as aroughcun, and on that of William Strachey as arathkone. It has also been identified as a reflex of a Proto-Algonquian root *ahrah-koon-em, meaning "[the] one who rubs, scrubs and scratches with its hands". Wiki

I take down our bird feeders at night (when I remember) or they will frequently be empty the next morning. Clever little rascals.

Enjoy a wonderful weekend!

A whitetail doe cleans her newly born fawn.
A curious turkey has to check out the new arrival as well.

Wishing all Mother's, past and present, a most wonderful day!

This wee fawn was hungry and evidently thought this young buck was his mother. Lesson learned as the buck soon chased him away. The fawn fortunately did find his mother soon after. Was amusing to watch.

Not a great shot as I wasn't ready for the fawn to do this.
However it is something unusual.

Something different for April Fool's Day.

Have a great weekend, hopefully without too many tricks.

These 2 young whitetail bucks sparred for quite awhile. The one on the right was more aggressive, yet he had already dropped an antler. Fun to watch.

I caught a couple other bucks in Banff sparring like this. In comments.

Thanks for taking a look! Always appreciated!

Enjoy a wonderful weekend!
