I love hawks (but don’t tell my guinea pigs!) but none are around my house or our previous home and I rarely see any in Mount Dora unless they are in flight and therefore impossible to photograph quickly. There is one that hangs out in the backyard of a client’s office. I need to remember to carry my phone with me when I am in that area of the building so I’ll be ready to take a picture when he appears.
At my home, we see cardinals, Carolina wrens, and the occasional crow or mocking bird, really not many birds. Perhaps they don’t like all the ducks and stay away?? There is a great blue heron that sometimes hangs out at the lake across the boulevard but I’ve never seen him in our lake 😣
