Not always the five!

Sometimes your best sighting of the day is not one of the big five. Today was such a day. As beautiful and exciting as the Rhino, Buffalo and Cheetah sightings were, seeing this African Harrier Hawk flying from tree to tree and looking for nests was very special.

The Thanda guests enjoyed watching this raptor concentrating on his afternoon hunt (and almost giving some Guinea Fowls a heart attack in the process :-)).

Hawk @ The Arcade

Pigeons used to have a good time at the Arcade in Downtown Nashville 🙂

The good times are over!

A juvenile Cooper’s Hawk has made the Arcade his home and has helped the Arcade management with their Pigeon problem.

At today’s First Saturday Gallery crawl you may be able to spot the beautiful bird in the building’s roof structure.

I am looking forward to seeing you tonight at the Arcade!
