Last summer we had a big red tailed hawk hanging around or neighborhood. Someone snuck into my backyard and let my fantails out. Well it tried to get them, but they managed to elude it and all but one returned. The one that was missing suddenly dove down from the tree and got under the canopy with me. This hawk was really brazen. It was sitting on a fence post by my neighbors yard and stood it's ground until I was within 5 feet of it before it flew off. Well with the tree damage from last October and then in February, most of it's perching sites are now gone. Figured no more hawk this year, right? WRONG!! I was washing up some dishes in the kitchen looking out the window when I noticed these fluffy white things floating down from the sky. At first I thought there was a fire somewhere and it was ashes. So I went out to investigate and discovered they were actually feathers. Did a quick check of the gang, everybody was accounted for. So I looked around and in the remains of my neighbors tree there it was! Guess it had caught either a pigeon or a dove and decided to eat it there. I sure am glad I have the runs covered!
