Camera Critters Sunday -- Hawk on fencepost


One more example of a day that I suddenly whipped the car off the road and the camera out of the bag! This was outside Corsicana, going toward Waco. There are farms and ranches and open fields all along that highway. Some of the old fences are disappearing daily, as the highway department is preparing to widen the highway from 2 to 4 lanes very soon. This was shot out the passenger window, probably with a little zoom involved!
Looking to give you a little more information on this bird, I've discovered that I don't know what type it is! Can anyone help me out here? This was taken on 9/22/05 so it could have been in migration from summer to winter grounds. See more Camera Critters at Misty Dawn's.

I don't know what kind - the pantaloons remind me of a partridge ?? doubt it though - grouse??

I absolutely love when I open someone's Camera-Critters post and my jaw drops to the ground in amazement or respect of the photo. This photo caused me to do just that! I LOVE this. I'm also very jealous too, because I have been trying to get a shot such like this for months. I'm amazed that it stayed there long enough for you to photograph it - AWESOME!

Never been as close to this as a hawk of many kind in the wild. Terrific shot.
