Nature in My Own Backyard

When looking out of the window this morning, I thought something looked a little weird.  I saw a bird, and it seemed huge.  I took a closer look, and in my Mrs. Kravitz voice, I croaked, "Honey, come look...there's a hawk in our backyard."

Apparently, we have a hawk nest nearby, because The Husb spied one flying right over his car one night when he was driving into the garage.

We have a lot of squirrels in backyard because we have big trees that are full of acorns for most of the year.



















Unfortunately for our squirrel friends, hawks are hunters.

















 
I opened the back door to see what would happen and the hawk took it's prey to the retaining wall.

















MK out.
