It was so hot here yesterday (106) that when we came home there was
a young hawk sitting in our bird bath.  We waited several minutes before getting
out of the car not wanting to scare him.  He didn't move when we got out and
went into the house.  My husband keeps three feeding pans of water
out for the birds while it is so hot and this young hawk stayed for almost
30 minutes enjoying the water.  I wish the pictures were better but
I took them from inside the house, not wanting to scare him off.

At the end of the day we took a few last minute pictures, gave a lot of hugs
and kisses then said our sad good-bys... 
What a wonderful day that will long be remembered in the Hopper Family :)
