A juvenile hawk, with wings spread wide, was flying low this morning. His behavior displayed something new and different. Rather than land on any one of the many trees, he chose a playful spot. The neighbor's weathered basketball backboard. If I hadn't seen him fly by, he would have gone unnoticed as he was well camouflaged in that setting. Soon he flew to a nearby pine tree, and quickly returned to his post above the hoop.
Hawk has been a special messenger over the years, and so when one appears, I try to pay attention.
This young red-shouldered hawk seemed to point out that the best way to score points today is to fly low (below any turbulence) and watch out for anything that may try to distract you from your goal. Keep your eye on the ball.
I was thankful for the heads-up.
Enjoy your day with the Angels.
