I think I wrote in the spring about a robin that will not stop attacking its reflection in our windows! Well, our neighborhood has upgraded.
Circling our yard, and the neighbor’s yard is a mature red-tailed hawk. He’s been here for about 2 weeks. The funny thing is, I think he’s looking for something. He’s not screaching like you may hear in the park, but he’s squeeking. Check out our video below that my husband took.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBz_18k200E[/youtube]
He keeps circling around and around. Sometimes you hear the noise near, sometimes a few hundred feet away, and sometimes he swoops over us in the yard. I actually kind of like it- he’s kind of like a carnivorous pet with large talons.
Of course, my husband says, as per the new insurance commercial online -“I shoulda got a falcon!” – Anyone else see that commercial?
