A Hunting We Will Go

Monday, April 22, 2013

Just outside my window is a mesquite tree,

And there are a pair of hawks that like to sit on a limb right outside my window and watch the world.

I don't know what kind they are but they don't match... That is , they don't look the same, probably because one is male and the other is female.

Every so often they will both sit on that limb, but usually stay there alone, and occasionally one will bring its prey up to the limb to eat it.... Which can be pretty disgusting, but that's not how the hawk thinks, I'm sure.

No telling how long they will stick around but it probably looks like a happy hunting ground to them with all the bird houses and bird feeders around.

Fascinating watching...

  Everybody's got to eat.

The duck's eggs are hatching near where I live. A crow was after one of the newly hatched ducklings, as it paddled around in the water to avoid being eaten. Parent ducks were no where to be seen.

    We have a great horned owl that has arrived each of the last two autumn seasons. Beautiful bird, but you have to keep a close eye on your small dogs.

    I thought that was so cool when I had a hawk in the tree over my yard, until I thought about my little dog.... emoticon
