This is a North American Ferruginous Hawk at the Carrizo Plain National Monument in the hills of Central Coastal California.
Just a few minutes after this pic was taken this hawk took off after a large Raven that was carrying a baby Giant Kangaroo rat in its bill. Oh the drama! The Giant Kangaroo rat is the keystone species in the Carrizo Plain.
Wild turkeys on a cold and windy Wisconsin day.
I looked this one up in my Audubon online guide and I believe it is a juvenile Sharped-Shinned Hawk.
But it also very well could be a Coopers like @johnnymg said

This guy’s out a bit early.
Don't know how I spotted this tiny tree frog, but I did. Did not even know we had them in my region. The core of the daisy is maybe 1" across.
Squirrels! I love them. I do feed them, but do not supply their entire diet.
Just taken today, a 5-lined Skink found his lunch.
A blue winged wasp. Several years ago a portion of my front yard was home to a wasp orgy. Late summer, they would fly in tight patterns trying to attract a mate. Every so often they drop into the grass for some wasp sex.
The wings have a deep iridescent blue color at certain angles. Caught this one away from the fracas feeding.
Have not seen them in several years.
On my way to the acupuncturist in town I saw this guy hanging out...
This is the rare Northern Pigmy Owl. From perch to the top of his head only about 4". These owls are really 'cute' but they have a rep for being very ferocious. They can take prey about twice their body weight. Known to prefer the brains of their victims.
This is the very first one I've ever seen. Checked it off the bucket list.
