    I don't let my furbabies out unless I go with them. Two of them could be easy prey, while the other two aren't in much danger. I can hardly lift the little fatties!

    One of my favorite things to look for here in Brooklyn are Quaker Parrots. The story is they were imported from Argentina in the sixties to be sold in pet stores. But they were accidentally set free at JFK airport. Everyone assumed they would not survive the northeast winter, so it was chalked up as a loss. But they adapted by nesting in the warm electric boxes at the top of poles. They have colonized much of Brooklyn including Brooklyn College and many parks. and add some happy color among the pigeons.

    I had a Red Tail Hawk land in the tree right outside my sewing room window. I know he was hunting the quail at the back door.

    We have hawks in our area too. I hate seeing them. They kill our chickens and I have seen them swoop down in our feeder and kill a Cardinal. I also have a small dog that I have to be very careful with when we go for walks. We have sunflower seeds out for the birds and have many varieties that are so interesting, but the hawk is their enemy and I wish they would stay in the field to catch mice and stay away from our feeders and chickens.

    I feed also all Birds, cardinals, chickedees, bluejay, Mr. Woody Woodpecker, Mourning Doves, but black birds and Hawk seem to me they're meant, they chase and bite other birds,but of course they have to eat too. it's nice of you to take picture. Birds are like human, there are good and bad.
