Since we moved into our house, we've always had a large nest just outside of our balcony in one of the trees. Sometimes birds will come and go - but about 6 months ago (or so), a family of hawks moved in.
A baby hawk was born recently, and it's been interesting to look out the window and see it grow. I think they are pretty cute.
Yesterday, while I was working, I looked out the window and saw the parent hawk fly in with a snake in her mouth!! Yuck - but I am glad she is helping me control the snake population around our house. :)
Mom and dad hawks (I think) watching the nest.

This was taken through the window screen, so it's blurry. This is mama bird feeding the baby the fresh snake she just brought in for lunch.
I'm kind of geeky, but I thought this was so cool.
