This was pretty cool, for me at least: I spotted a hawk (?) or some sort of raptor while walking Max this afternoon.
Unfortunately, not so cool for the local birds. I chatted with the couple who live in the house next door, who told me that they had seen this bird attack (and presumably eat) a nest of baby robins a while earlier. It was definitely hanging around, perhaps looking for other tasty treats. It flew from roof, to tree, to roof again…
… before heading out for good.
Definitely my coolest bird capture so far! Although at the moment, I’m definitely regretting not having spent some time with our Peterson’s to figure out exactly what kind of bird it is.
