A Three Hawk Round of Golf

The following pictures were taken of three different hawks during one round of golf, yesterday in Bent Tree.  One swooped down into the rough near the creek, on the front nine, and caught what looked like a mouse. On the back nine, a hawk was sitting in a tree eating the remnants of something.  Another hawk tried to steal the meal from the one sitting in a tree, but failed and flew to another tree to sit and watch.

Bear coming out from behind a stump

There have been a lot of bear sightings over the last year, and many people in Bent Tree have taken some amazing bear pictures.  A few years ago, it seemed like I saw bears everywhere I went in Bent Tree.  Then I hit a long, dry spell.  Until last Monday, I hadn’t seen a bear since 2014.  On Monday, this bear appeared from behind an old stump.  I was able to grab my camera and snap a couple of pictures before the fast-moving bear went across the street and behind some trees.  The pictures aren’t great, but I’m happy.

Barred Owl

A barred owl had some sort of prey just off the road in the underbrush.  We were driving by in a golf cart and must have startled the owl, and it startled us as it flew from the ground to a tree.  We stopped and watched it for a few minutes, until it seemed to get a little annoyed and started moving from tree to tree, getting closer to us (and its prey).  We moved along so it could get back to its meal.
