Yesterday, on my way home from school, I had a really close encounter with a large red-tailed hawk. I was riding my bike down Hackberry Lane which is a steep downhill not too far from home. I noticed out of my left eye a large bird swooping down the mountain just in front of me and to the left. He was mostly parallel to me but angled a little bit as if he was going to cross the road at a shallow angle, but I was going just a little bit faster (about 48 mph) so we were headed for a collision. The hawk saw me at the last moment and made a sudden jerk back to the left and stayed parallel before pulling up to land on a tree. It was so cool! Beautiful, large bird covered in brown feathers — I’m glad I didn’t hit it. I think we both would have been down for the count!
