A Welcome Visitor
I looked out the window of my study this morning about 7:45 and saw this big guy perched on our side yard fence. He was there on the fence about five minutes, looking all around. I presume he was looking for, or had just eaten a fine breakfast of baby rabbits, or maybe some damned squirrels. The rabbits and squirrels were laying low while he was around. I am not much of a birder, but I think it was a red-tailed hawk, although I didn't know they were that big. After glowering for a while, he flew up to the top of a tree and I haven't seen him since. I hope he hangs around. He will be well fed.
