Cooper (Chicken) Hawk
I was outside at 7am this morning and it was already 80ºF/26.6ºC. I wasn't out there long before MiniMe came to sit with me and keep me company.
MiniMe and I were enjoying the sun and the breeze when we were dive bombed by this Chicken Hawk (Cooper Hawk). It swooped in so low that I could have reached out and touched it! I wonder if it was deciding if either of us were worth snacking on.
The Chicken Hawk landed on a branch right above where our burn pile is and stayed there for a while. With all the birds coming and going at the feeders I finally decided to 'encourage' him to move along somewhere else.
It is thunder & lightening now with rain falling and so I'm going to turn lights on and do some beading. I've said for days I was going to do some but haven't done any since I finished my Poinsettia set.
With the storms developing as they are in the Atlantic, glad I went to the store yesterday and that I keep the fuel tank in my car topped off.
Stay home if you can, but please stay safe and healthy
