I've never seen a hawk just standing on the ground.
It has been a good summer for wild life sightings for the family. We've seen a couple of red foxes in town, a young black bear running across the Kangamangus Highway, a large snapping turtle
in Amherst, garter snakes in our yard, a nest of woodpeckers in a neighbor's tree and even a squirrel raiding and eating a baby bird.
I'll try to dig up the turtle pictures. Too many digital photos to search through....
