Leaves are not my whine today, feathers and such are! We had a little visitor this morning for breakfast. A Hawk, I only wish it was Tony Hawk that way he could help me rake leaves! It wasn't a big hawk but it certainly took down a large pigeon for breakfast. Now amongst my leaves I have feathers and a pigeon carcass....I'm  drawing the line. I'll rake leaves without complaining but someone needs to get the feathers and body out of here!

                       

Sophie watching the show!






Nice uh!

Aw! I wonder if he hit your glass doors. Poor pigeon but I'm like you, I hate to touch anything that's dead. Puppy sure looked like he was itching to get out!

Sophie looks like such a well mannered lady in this picture. I am sure she would never have anything to do with something as nasty as a dead bird.

Oh no. Poor you. It just gets better and better. Not.

Yikes, while a hawk's gotta eat! Kinda neat you got to see it though:)

Is that bird dead??

Ina in Alaska said...

Wow that was pretty spectacular!!! Mother Nature is so interesting and she put on a show for you!! I would have to remove the carcass myself if it happened here, else 3 curious poodles would do some exploring of their own......the wolf heritage would probably kick in.....xoxoxo

I can see the look on Sophie's face as to say "let me at it, mom". How is she feeling? xoxo

Your yard seems to be the popular place for nature. But you did what any blogger in their right mind would have done....grab the camera!

MMM Breakfast!

I won't want to clean up after it, but that is a pretty impressive little hawk. He took down a bird almost as big as he is.

It's not everyday you get a rare visitor like that. Is it really rare there?

Nice photos. :)

Sophie looks sad for the pigeon. Dumb hawk!!

Beth Adamson said...

Amazing you got that on film. Is your camera in your pocket? Sophie looks so cute. You have great experience from your childhood on raking leaves. You can do it. Use your poop scooper to pick up the dead bird girl. Be tough.

OMG...your leaf problem is growing by leaps and bounds! And carcasses! I don't even want to know what's going to happen out there next...spare Honda parts? ;-)

That would be the end of leave raking for me.
