    Which would be better to say "like a hawk" or "with eagle eyes"?

    I wonder which usage is correct.
    Do I have to use "like a hawk" or would it be better to say "with eagle eyes"?
    Or are both of these two sentences correct?

    He was watching her like a hawk.
    He was watching her with eagle eyes.

    Re: Which would be better to say "like a hawk" or "with eagle eyes"?

    I would use the first. We use "eagle-eyed" as an adjective but "with eagle eyes" isn't usually used in the way you tried to.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
