When I created the flower bed in front of the house this past Spring, I added a trellis with a Pink Mandevilla planted at its base. The Mandevilla is climbing its way up the trellis but the trellis also serves as a perch for many of my wild birds.
Yesterday, I heard a loud noise on the front porch so I went to investigate. I saw Precious standing in the corner looking out towards the front yard. I followed where she was looking and saw a hawk perched on the trellis. (I'm not sure what the noise was. I'm guessing Precious made a sudden jump or move because of the hawk causing the noise.)
I ran to our bedroom to grab my camera and to snap some photos.
They have extremely good hearing as it turned its head toward me whenever I was moving around the bedroom.
I hid behind the curtains and snapped these photos between the blinds!
This is why my chickens have to stay in their run. We have lots of hawks out here that would love to have some chicken for dinner.
Till next time,
