He's Back!!

The juvenile Cooper’s Hawk reported on in the last post is back making passes through our back yard. Jeanette and I continue to be on the sick list, so not much in the way of exciting adventures to report. Most of our entertainment seems to come from observations in the back yard.  Besides this juvenile Cooper’s Hawk, we have had visits from a mature Cooper’s and also a mature Sharp Shinned, so we are sure that we have had at least three different hawks patrolling our back yard.  I daily put out birdseed to feed the little birds, they eat it, and then the hawks make an attempt to eat them. And so goes the circle of life.
