|Small blessings...my two favorite birds in the same photo|
I was upstairs hanging up laundry when Liz hollered to me.
"Ma, we have an injured hawk down here."
But yeah, a bird had hit one of the big 4' x 8' windows in the living room and was grounded on the lawn. We very rarely get bird strike on them, fortunately. It is probably because of all the shotgun pellet holes....
However, sure enough there was a large, immature Coopers Hawk on the lawn under the window. It wasn't much hurt because before I could run and get the camera it flew off to the mulberry trees for a bit of a rest and then was gone. I guess it made quite a crash though.
Peggy was fascinated. Long after the sun went down and the windows showed nothing but darkness, she kept calling us over to look out for the bird.
A fledgling birder? Wouldn't that be nice.....
