Weekend in Paradise
I went to see the hawk today .....
At Roberts Bay the tide was very high and not like it was when I took these pictures. Here a few days ago it was low and had so many beautiful reflections for me.
Today I could not walk all along the beach. The beach was empty and the tide was right up to the houses.
I did not see the little hawk, all I saw was a baby Cooper's Hawk being chase by a crow.
I dreamed of seeing Spunky on a branch like he used to sit.
I dreamed of seeing him fly through the trees like he used to.
I dreamed of seeing Spunky mantle over his food and fight off the eaglet, but no Spunky the hawk today.
I wished I had seen the eaglets on the nest with the mom and dad eagle like I used to see them. But no eaglets. The nest is quiet and empty.
I did see the mom or dad eagle fly off her tree by the point and disappear into the trees somewhere.
I wondered where the eaglets had gone. Did they fly so far they never would come back?
The last time I saw the hawk he was way over down the other side of the bay.
A few days ago I saw the eaglet sit on the tree on the point but not today.
So into the sunset I will go with all my memories and love for the little hawk that grew up with the eagles and became a part of my life and my heart.
I must go forward and find other topics but I seem to be missing my little friendly hawk. I probably will go through my pictures and pick out a few more of him and some more video of him. Right now I feel really sad. We will visit the nest a few more times but it is empty. I think I need to rest a bit as I worked very hard on this project and have run out of energy.
I am very happy to have so many new readers! I usually publish a few times a week but since it is summer I may cut it down a bit. I may spend less time on my Facebook Page so that I can go out in the field and acquire my new photos.
We have found some new nests and new babies and they will be coming up on the next postings. There never will be a story like the hawk in the eagles nest for me. That is once in a life time.
I am on Facebook so you can find me there, link in contact on the top. You can see my Island Rambles Fan Page and also my own Facebook. I have started on Instagram also so you can find my photos there also.
To my bloggers, I thank you for sticking with me. I will now return to blogging and hope to pop into your sites soon.
