Chicken Hawk

We call this bird Chicken Hawk, do you know another name for them?  I saw this beauty outside my apartment a few days ago. Am very pleased with this photo!

Photo taken with Nikon D60 DSLR Camera


  1. Nice picture Martina....good work.

    greetings, Joop

  2. Beautiful! I enjoyed looking at your nature photography in a number of posts. Keep up the good work!

  3. Martina, this is also a fantastic picture of chicken hawk. I don't think that we have this bird in the Northern Utah. You captured it so wonderfully. It seems that this bird is so alert. Looking for food?...

    Very beautiful picture!!!!!!

    Have a nice weekend and very creative!!!!!!

  6. Thank you everyone for visiting and commenting on my photo - thanks for the wonderful compliments. I am so happy to know that my work is being appreciated.

    This is the first time I observed this bird resting on the electical wire. I normally would see them on a light pole. I guess he was on the look out for food.

  7. Yes, we have a small hawk just like it called a Kestrel. I believe it is in the falcon family. Wonderful set of images. I like birds.

  8. Thanks for visiting and posting on my blog Doug, it is a pleasure having you here. I am facinated with the birds eventhough I don't see them often and get really get close to them.
