Two Hawk Post.

In Dallas, long ago, I (not yet fully Gadora Wilder) shared life with a man breaking into the film industry. We drove a lot back then (Texas takes pride in showy vehicles with super high mileage) and somewhere between Dallas and Ft. Worth we spotted a pair of hungry hawks perched high on a freeway post. It was a rare and regal sight, and I offered out loud that it’d be a great name for a post production company: Two Hawk Post. He and I didn’t make it, nor did the post production outfit, but occasionally sunny days in Texas offer spirit-lifting, hawk-spotting opportunities along the wide and busy freeways.

This weekend Austin’s hawks were out. The air was crisp, the skies sunny. Gadora spotted at least TEN red-shouldered, rufous tailed Hawks perched high above the Texas roads. More than one post held two birds of prey. *Gadora borrowed a pic from Adam Welz’ library, as it proves quite difficult to snap a shot of hawks along the freeway while behind the wheel.

Never once thought about bringing these birds indoors, but found some folks who have…

Little Pickle Design’s 12×12 Giclée retro bird prints are fancy, folks (love the wall color, too!). You’re looking for the “print #3 of 4 (the third print above the couch in the photo), which is our retro flying hawks on turquoise.”

One thought on “Two Hawk Post.

  1. i have a pair of hawks that hang in my neighborhood. it’s awesome to hear them but hard to catch them hanging out-i only have one picture of one of them, but have seen them grow over the past two years while in flight and the rare op of a view on my shed roof out back. i live at 56th street on the east side of Airport blvd in Austin TX. seems to be a bit of a cool bird hang out. there’s also a crane that lives/hangs in the creek nearby. Keep watching, god love the small bastions of faith that these little and big creatures seem to cling to.
