    So here I am looking around byc and hear a big commotion outside, run down and out just in time to get a hawk off of my itty bitty mille fluer d'uccle. She's fine, just a bit shaky!
    I had just let then out to free range the yard a bit too. It was either a coopers or sharped shin hawk, I can't tell the 2 apart. It wasn't my big red tailed, who I think moved on for the winter.
    Darn things, eat a morning dove, why don'tcha?
