CountryBoy looked outside and saw the reason why...
A hawk wanting some dinner of its own.
I believe this is a Cooper's Hawk.
Later in the day, my sister-in-law (who lives next door) called to let me know that he was there again.
We knew every time the birds were quiet outside that the hawk was back, sitting in the tree just above the feeder.
These are the birds Mr. Cooper Hawk was wanting to feast on...
I don't know if the hawk went away full or hungry.
I don't want to even think about it even though I know that it's the way of nature and the circle of life.
I mean, surely there is plenty on the buffet a few yards away in the desert that the hawk could eat. Like snakes and spiders? Right?!
Till next time,
