Last night while walking a near-by golf course this Harris Hawk all of a sudden came thundering out of a tree directly in front of me.
Guess we were both startled by the golfer who's ball HIT ME straight in the back, & bounced off the tree this raptor was roosting in.....
I must add after my recent back surgery this was unwelcomed....a trip to the neurosurgeon was on the agenda today....OUCH!
