2.22.2010 - Can you name this raptor & Last time to fill the bird feeders

We were doing our last bird feeding today as we will be leaving here on Sunday. We kept hearing a hawk calling. I finally found him but until we got the golf cart turned around and the camera brought to life, all I got was a view of the underside of his rear end as he was ready to push off the branch..... So can you name this hawk from his underside rear?

There weren't many little birds out in the heat of the day... It was 80 degrees and quite warm. Last Monday when it was cool and cloudy, I took over 200 photos, but today it was just these two. On these warm days, it is a challenge to take down old citrus and put up new because the bees are all over the citrus. I left the citrus job to Doug today. ;-)

Doug has more softball games this week and then the play-offs which he will miss the following week. We did not know the schedule when we made our reservations so he tells me we need to stay down here next year until the first week in March so he can play in the playoffs and in the Can-Am Game - the Canadians against Americans. The loosers have to sing the anthem of the winners.

We are going to try to squeeze in one more trip to Progresso, Mexico and to South Padre Island on Wednesday. Friday and Saturday we will spend doing our final packing to leaving on Sunday. It is amazing how much "stuff" you can accumulate in 4 months of sitting in the same place! It is time to clean house and discard stuff we're no longer using.
