I was sitting in my car in the parking lot of our building where we live and I heard the hawk before I saw it. There were lots of crows flying around and I knew their concern was the hawk, so they were harassing it. I saw the hawk briefly fly over the open sky that I could see from the car and then its call got more distant. It sounded like another lost opportunity.
So I get out of the car and head up the stairs and there is what they call a catwalk to our door. In one section, the catwalk overlooks the golf course and the trees that separate it from us. I scanned the skies, sighed and leaned on the railing and there it was! If flew up and perched right in the tree in front of me. Still quite a distant shot, but it came out nicely!
