Red-tailed Hawk, January 16, 2019

ABC Wednesday, Wild Bird Wednesday, and My Corner of the World
B is for Buteo jamaicensis - Red-tailed Hawk

Buteo jamaicensis, Red-tailed Hawk, Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, January 13, 2019
I was very surprised to find him (or her) sitting on a fence post close to the road! As you can guess from its ruffled feathers, there was a strong wind blowing. As an interesting side-note, in Europe Hawks and other birds of the Buteo group are called Buzzards (another B for ABC Wednesday), but Buzzards here in the United States are Vultures.

Have a wonderful day!

Garden Bloggers Bloom Day, January 2019

The northeast corner of Mississippi, USA zone 7
When I made these photos yesterday it was cloudy and cold, 38F (3.3C).
We have had a lot of rain, but no snow yet.

Hellebores!   I have had these so long that I don't remember their individual names.
