Feathered friends in flight

I love watching the birds. I spotted a grey owl last week on a wetland walk. Although, to call it 'wet' these days isn't quite true! We've had double-digit negative temperatures for a few days.

Yesterday, standing in the front picture window, I spotted some sort of hawk zipping about after the chickadees. It launched itself at the tree where the dear birds rest.

Cycle of life... that small spruce tree is Buster's spot for bird watching. I was happy he was indoors! 
Some sort of raptor!
Bob, of Bob & Louise - Gilligallou Bird store,
thinks it might be a juvenile bald eagle!

Whilst walking the cats, there was another raptor circling above. They are difficult to photograph!

This pair shared the tree
blue jay and cow bird

This a cowbird, waiting for its turn at the feeder!

I love bird watching too. I wonder who will be at the cabin when I return? - Margy

Your photos really soar ;>) (Seriously, they are great -- I am too slow to get good flight shots!)

Looks like a bald old one. It this bird landed you would be impressed with the large size.
