We are finally having some nice weather even if it is cloudy and possible rain on the way. But nice temperatures. Been sitting out on the porch and crocheting some hats for a friend with Traumatic Brain Injury. The plates make him very cold which in turn cause terrible headaches. He asked if I could make one in royal blue with the green ribbon since it is TBI month. So I got that one and another mailed off to him and his wife said he was so thrilled. We go back a long way and always had great fun together. Which they didn't live so far away now.
After going in the house today for a late lunch Fred decided he wanted to go back out. He loves laying in the sun. As I walked out something caught my eye and at a closer look it was a beautiful Cooper's Hawk having his lunch. I had wondered why I hadn't seen or heard any humming birds lately or the pesky ladder back woodpecker.
Here comes a pesky human
OK lady get your pictures and be gone
Lady do I bother you when your eating?
I have seen lots of feathers under and around this tree before but I thought it might be the stinking cats killing off the birds and maybe some of it is. But when it comes to the hawks I understand it's nature, when it's those dam cats that people allow to roam free that's another story.
Good Night All
