The most AMAZING THING EVER just happened to me. I've come to expect the unexpected when it comes to animals appearing outside of my bedroom window; my neighbors have quite the collection of weird pets / farm animals. However, this was no pet. I went in and climbed up on the bed to hang some pants on the curtain rod to dry. Looked out the window and there is a GINORMOUS REDTAILED HAWK just chilling out. SOOOOOO COOL! I was thinking maybe it got hit by a car or something because that is majorly odd for one to be just sitting on / near the ground. Well I snuck out to the living room to get my camera and came back in slowly to get a few shots; my favorite pic is where it is making eye contact with me! There's a bit of a blur because of taking the pics through a sunny window, but they are still priceless to me! Definitely a highlight of my year so far.
