The wind is up and the hawks are screaming. It must be March.

When we moved into this house two years ago this month, one of the first things I saw was a redtail circling about a foot over the top of the house with prey in his beak. He flew to a live oak in the neighbor's yard where he was joined by his mate, the biggest hawk I have ever seen. We soon realized that they were raiding squirrel nests that had been left exposed when the live oaks lost their leaves.

A day or two ago, I took Lani for a walk through the neighborhood. At one point, we heard the hawks calling to each other at close range. I looked up and saw the female light on a utility pole. She called out to the male who swooped in and mounted her. I stood still and watched the birdie porn, totally amazed at what I was seeing. Hawks are messengers and visionaries as totums. I always try to be vigilant regarding things I see and hear after I see one. I choose to believe that observing a pair of hawks in such an act of creation is an omen of good things to come, possibly the fruition of a long held desire. I am sharing this with you along with the hope that you will have your most cherished wish fulfilled soon.

Hawks are so beautiful. You're lucky to live in an area with so many of them. Good fortune to you.

That's amazing...a double wish for good news. Every time I see the hawks I stay aware for good messages...some are very small, but they are always miraculous.

The best birdie porn story I've heard...thank you!

Thank you. I agree with your interpretation of what you were shown. Birds in general are messengers who will even give away to us on occasion so that we can understand what they have come to tell us.

OH! I saw a hawk today too! A red shouldered one flying over me as I walked my dog. I see her once in a while on a dead oaks highest branch during the winter months so I was quite happy to see her today. Yeah they are magical aren't they?
