At the beginning of the summer we were pleasantly surprised to find a hawk “hanging out” in our backyard. He stayed for several minutes until he noticed P and I watching him and then he took off. We thought it was a one time only deal but we’ve noticed him in our yard at least once a week. Pretty cool!
This past weekend while Monster was eating lunch, we spied the hawk also eating lunch – a mouse! I wasn’t fast enough to get my camera but Monster thought it was great. After the hawk was done with his prey, Monster said “Hawk, eat more mouses! Eat more mouses!” All our noise frightened our feather friend away, but it’s nice to know someone is taking care of some of our pesky rodents. 😉
