From blue to dusky pink, when the big birds arrive, yes,the small ones flee in haste.Love the bare outline of the tree branches. Cheers. Jean.
That was a big change! Guess its pretty easy to tell who is king of the mountain (or branch!). Great shots showing the changes!
The hawks really broke up the party in a hurry. :)
oh yes. The noisy miners here will gang up and sqwark away endlessly until the odd one out dissapears. It's always quite amazing really, that the smaller bird can boss away the big birds. In your case though the bigguns won out
Oh my.... Beautiful caputures!
Along with your photos I like the title of your post.
Oh I love these shots Hawks are my favourite. Great title. B
Well look at those big feathery bullies.
Love the composition! Great shots!
Hey where'd every body go? Hee hee. Great shots!
haha yes, that's how it goes
Very cool photos...and soooo true!
Bye, bye, blackbirds!That;s a great tree.
You captured the food change perfectly!
Yep. I've seen that too many times in the workplace too. Great post.
Survival of the fittest ~ Excellent photography ~ ( A Creative Harbor)
beautiful red-tails! but i LOVE that craggy tree! :)
The bare tree is perfect for the theme of these shots! Nature in action!!!
Beautiful shots! I guess hawks don't play nice, huh?
Heh heh. Those hawks really spoiled a fun party.
Ahwwaaa..run away.. Love the hawk pics and that tree they love. such is life in a tree.
Great photos! Love that old tree.
very nice article. thank to share.. i love it.
love that first shot especially! great title too!
Ha! I like how one bird is already flying away while the rest look as though they're voicing their displeasure. Cool shots!
Lol. The last thing one wants is a vulture hanging around and waiting for the inevitable...or in this case, a hawk. Best get on the move.
Funny, but so true!
Great pictures and what a COOL tree! :)
Ha, love it! The hawk looks like it is saying "where did everyone go?". I was a little worried of what I was going to see in this post with the title:)
The changing of the guard, so to speak. That tree is very photogenic too.
What a great tree for birds and photos!! I sure hope they were not dinner!!!
love the bare branches...
Love it! Boy, I bet those redwings and the robin took off in a hurry when the hawks showed up! :-) Lovely shots! I've been meaning to tell you that the white wing dove's bill is indeed curved and sturdy. He is a bigger bird than the mourning dove, and the blue on his face extends from his eye down to his bill, instead of just being the blue circle you see on the mourning dove. I saw a collared dove one day in the yard also, but he was gone before I realized and could take a picture! Most of my bird pictures are backlit or too far away, but I do my best! :-) I was proud of the dove shots on top of the saguaro though. Some of my better ones. I always appreciate your kind comments about my pictures! Have an awesome weekend!
Poor little blackbirds...but that is life and those Hawks are awesome. One flew over our house the other day (there is one in the neighborhood) but again no camera handy.
