Twice yesterday something large hit a window in my house. Harry Hawk! I thought. I dragged my sick body off of the sofa to see what had hit the window so hard. One look out the window at the squirrel hiding under the snow shovel...told me all I needed to know. I stepped outside to chase what I knew I would find, probably hiding in some branches, Harry.
Well, low and behold, bells of hell, it wasn't Harry..It was a gigantic red tailed hawk. He lifted off of my roof only to return 3 times. No wonder no one is eating the birdseed. I did what I could...but by the third chase off..I think he had his eye on me!
CAMERA..I thought...but he flew away. Camera in hand I went to the upstairs bedroom to see if he was out there....Oh yes he was...hiding in the pines...damn..my photo card was full...as I tried to delete some photos ...he flew off....that magnificent red tail fanned right in my face.
He flew up high so fast and began to flap those beautiful wings I just stood there watching as he flapped away.
What am I saying..beautiful? He's a killer. He is trying to get one of my wards!
oh...now I'm really sick. I better go lay back down.
Oh no....do you think he might get Handsome?
