The other day we looked out of the window and we saw a bird. It was a big bird. It looked like it was eating an animal. We looked a little closer and the bird looked like some sort of hawk. 

If you are a frequent reader you have read about our menagerie of animals in our backyard: raccoons, egrets, rats, fish, skunks, hummingbirds, dogs, cats, etc.  Now we can add some sort of hawk.

Later in the morning we looked out and the hawk was back. It flew around and caught a small bird.  It landed with the bird in the fence. After a bit it flew off.  Brenda insisted I get the very dead bird and dispose of it.  A few hours later the hawk returned and seemed confused. It's prey was gone. I have not seen it since.  During this whole incident the dogs were going crazy. They went outside with their noses in the air, running around trying to find what smelled.  It added some excitement to their lives.

Went for a walk today.

Until tomorrow...
