This Hawk was out in one of our down pours.

Now all he could do was try to dry out. Ignoring us was a problem too. He had a good spot to get dry, but those big ‘one eyed’ things down below wouldn’t go away.

    1. One of the ‘mid-size’ Hawks. Smaller than a Coopers. The most common in the southeast, especially around swamps. In some places, notably the Everglades it is the only Hawk (except a stray now and then).
