    A birdie on the feeder.

    We were quite surprised to look out the window and see this birdie on the feeder. I was lucky that it waited long enough for me to get the camera.

    My daughter used to raised doves for 4H. We had several hawks come to the cage. The doves fluttered in the cage as if they were wounded so the hawks thought they were easy prey. There was a young one who tried for months to figure out how to get at those doves.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    Awesome! Thanks for sharing. We have some strange looking wild life here at times but if I try to take a picture, they disappear!

    Cool! I had a hawk baby come to the deck where we fed the birds, even little you could see how powerful they are!

    We had a large hawk land on the handles of our lawn mower, every animal in the neighborhood went very quiet, our 80lb dog went into his dog house and all of our geese hid under the pyrycanthia bush. He groomed his feathers and then flew off.

    We had a Cooper Hawk come to our yard one day in the winter. All the other birds disappeared until after he flew away. But he was there for about 30 minutes, just sitting and looking around.
