I had hoped to be cheering on my team in the big game, but that was not to be. This was supposed to me be cellybrating my team going to the game. I was even modest covering my spots 13 and 14. So I won't have to paint my furs green and gold for the game and get ready to cheer with mum. We will watch, both the game and the ads that they show. Mum and I don't really care exactly who wins the game. We sorta like the Pats, but then you never know about the Gigantic team either. So I will stay neutral. Can't you just tell I am real thrilled about this?! BTW, Happy Belated Groundhog Day. We hope spring comes soon. I have had enough of snow and cold. I want warm weather so that the windows can be open.
We had another hawk attack on late Friday afternoon. It was already getting dark so mum's pictures are not the best. You can see the feathers stuck to the metal cage that covers the feeder. Mum is not sure exactly what type of bird that it caught. Plus by the coloring mum thinks that this is a juvenile delinquent hawk. The breast is different than the mature hawk she got pictures of a few months ago. Here is a picture after the hawk got the birdie out of the cage and you can see a bit of stuff hanging from his beak that he was eating. After Mr Hawk finished eating she went outside to check things. You can see from the above picture lots of feathers on the ground. Mum said there was feathers scattered all around for 8-10 feet.
What was I doing when all of this was happening. Watching very intently from the bird watching spot. Mum was by the door taking the pictures, I was happy I was inside and safe. This morning she went out to check in better light on what happened. It had snowed some so the feathers on the ground were mostly covered. But you can see more feathers on the cage including a little bit of blood. Mum brought a few feathers in for me to see. I sniffed at them to smell the outside. Mum thinks these are most likely feathers from the hawk, due to the size and color. So that is all my excitement for now. Purrs.
