Look who came to dinner

 
 

This guy/gal stopped by our yard shortly before sundown, sitting on the shepherd's hook that holds our finch feeders. The finches were mighty perturbed at having their dinner time stock up thwarted by the big beast and they were all around the area making a ruckus. Within 5 seconds after the hawk flew away, the finch feeders were covered with finches again.

Too cool. I want bird feeders so I can see all my feathered friends. I have no good windows for it which is why I want to turn my back porch into a kitchen. JD

I've had not one, but two kestrels swoop down into my yard to dine on our tiny animal and bird friends!! One of them flew smack into one of our picture windows, fell to the ground stunned for a few moments before taking flight- with little Mr. Mouse in his talons....
