Several times during the month of November I have witnessed 2 Bird of Prey cross paths in midair in the backyard. Absolutely amazing to watch! Yesterday I watched a hawk standing in the pond acting like it was going to bathe. It stood in the water for a long time keeping a keen eye on its surroundings. This time another hawk entered the area, the hawk in the pond took flight and the 2 flew through yard only to disappeared. A few minutes later both hawks landed in the tree near the pond. Both disappeared again and then the hawk that was going to bathe came back to finish the job. The other hawk came back and landed in the tree next to the pond. Maybe 5 minutes later the hawk in the tree flew down and landed on the rocks that edge the pond. The hawk in the pond bathed while the other perched on the edge of the pond. Because of the time of year, I was in awe. The hawk on the rock flew off after 5 minutes or so. The hawk bathing finished and spent time preening in the pine tree enjoying the sun and 45-degree temps.
