Had quite the scare today! Kids were sitting at the table eating when the boys yell, "Cool! An eagle, Mom!" I was like, "What?!" I mean, we don't have eagles around here! So I jumped up and looked out the window to see A HAWK! and he was standing on the ground as bold as brass not 30 feet from my back door!! So I ran out the back door and every single chicken was under the van and DH's truck, except for one Langshan rooster. That single Langshan rooster was challenging the hawk! As soon as my feet (stocking feet, since I didn't stop for my shoes!) hit the grass, the hawk flew off. I then went back in the house, slipped on my shoes and went out to do a head count. Thankfully, no one was missing. WHEW! Honestly, I very nearly had a heart attack when I saw that hawk!
