Hope everyone is having a good new year so far. Mine and mum's has been quiet. Mum went to get Grampie and then they watch the Rosey Parade, had lunch and while Grampie napped, mum read.
But the biggest thing that has happened here so far involved Mr Hawk. Mum had just gotten up and out of bed today, and came to sit with me to watch the fevvers outside at the feeders. At the big feeders were mostly doves. Then suddenly Mr Hawk swooped through, caught a dove and took it to the ground! Oh my BAST! Before mum could get the flashy box Mr Hawk took off with the dove in its talons.
Mum and I have never seen the actual moment when Mr Hawk has caught another birdie! We have seen shortly after, with the hawk already having caught its victim. You can go back and see that here. Mum would like to correct that this is a Cooper's Hawk, not a Sharp Shinned one like she thought too.
Mum went out later to fill the feeders and you can see all sorts of fevvers laying around, plus a few red spots that mum thinks is probably blood. She didn't take pictures of that either
Here is one of mum's better pictures of Mr Hawk from a few years ago as he sat in our crabby apple tree, looking for his lunch.
Me, I did lots of napping, but mum was being silly and put one of my new mousies on me. I am not amused.
