This is a Prairie Falcon and I saw one yesterday.
He was sitting right on top of the big Juniper hedge we have right off the front patio. Obviously there were no little birds anywhere to be seen or heard. I just sat quietly and watched this beautiful creature flap it's wings about and look around. My heart nearly stopped as I tried to remain still as to not spook it. It was only about 8-10ft. away from me through the window. Then after a few minutes it jumped up, flapped it's gorgeous wings and took off.
Wow!! What an amazing experience that was for me. Hawks/falcons are my main animal totem/guide/guardian and usually I see them a ways off. This time I was granted a "home visit." It was as if God stopped by to see how things were going with me. It was a blessing and a joy to see that falcon.
