Native Americans believed that when an animal appears to you in a surprising or extraordinary place, it is wise to pay attention to the message it brings. The red-tailed hawk is considered to be the messenger bird, so I was intrigued to find this fellow sitting under a magnolia tree near my front door. He stayed for quite awhile and allowed me to get close enough to take this photo.
It is helpful to pay attention to all the signs around you to learn what message nature has for you.
Wishing you good ch’i,
