Have been noticing a small hawk lurking around my yard where I feed smaller birds. He is about pigeon size. Moves pretty fast so I wasnt sure until a few minutes ago. I just heard a very hard thump on my West picture window. Looked in the snow under the window and there the little terror was. He was alive but splayed out looking pretty bewildered. I'm not real thrilled about his predation but he looked pretty pathetic laying there. Figured he ,at least, must have broken a wing so got the phone book to call Jean Lindley's office for advice. Before I could even find the number he took off and landed atop of a nearby Evergreen. I am guessing the tree was his launch point of attack. The tree is about 50-60 feet from the window so he probably had a pretty good head of steamm up when he quit flying all of a sudden !! Anyone else see this type of bird around? ------ Just looked out again and a Pheasant is foraging where the hawk was a few minutes ago.
