These are excellent photos. Unless, I am mistaken, I believe the hawk is a Red Shouldered hawk. Very good shots.
Know that familiar sound. Glad yours worked out okay.Was sitting at my computer and heard a thump. Familiar sound of a bird flying into a window. A few minutes later, looked out on the balcony and yes, a young Red Whiskered Bulbul was just sitting on the balcony floor in front of the glass door.
He hit pretty hard as he was quite stunned and it knocked the crap out of him, literally.
Didn't know what to do so picked it up to move to a larger space on the balcony and it did flap its wings. Had my wife take a look and started to pick it up again to check its legs and she said no, wait a while to see how well it recovers. It just sat there still. I came back about 15-20 minutes later and it was on the balcony rail. A few seconds after it saw me and the camera, off it went.
Love a happy ending. Olympus E-M1 Mark III, Olympus 40-150mm PRO plus MC20
