Hawk taking a rain bath on the roof
It's been raining pretty hard all day here this morning. I love it! While I was outside adjusting the rain barrel (75 gallons, totally full, yay) I noticed this hawk on the roof taking a nice long rain bath.
It landed with a recent kill (a bird of some sort) that it discreetly tucked on the OTHER side of the peak of the roof while it took a nice, long ten minute rain bath. It was fun to watch it shift and move and fluff and lean to get Full Coverage. Isn't nature great?
I'm not sure what kind of hawk he is--Harris? Red-tail? Either way I thought it was a fun little moment so I thought I'd share a few pics. I hope you'll take a look and enjoy, AND I hope if you need rain you're getting it. This has been an amazingly great monsoon season in my part of town. Amazing.
Happy gardening, Grant
