    It's fall and fall brings migrating hawks, great horned owls and the like to my backyard. Just saw one on our back fence and the girls knew it was there because I had the hardest time getting them to leave the tree covered area and cross the small bit of clearing to their tractor. I guess I'll have to keep a closer eye on them while they're free ranging instead of leaving them out while I'm inside watching movies and fooling around on the internet.
    Darned responsible behavior, it's so time consuming! [​IMG]

    I'd recommend keeping them locked up for a few days until the hawks and other arial raptors have pass
