A Big Burd!

Yu know we gots the lil-ler burds round here. Robins, starlings, magpies, Western King Burds,  Cedar Waxwings (there's still sum comin round fur the currents, Puffy ain't got em all, yet), lil yeller warbler type burds. Then we got the pheasants, ducks, Canada geese. We got sum Bald Eagle, mostly in the winter.

An we gots sum hawks. Mommy ain't good with the I.D. stuff with hawks but this one hangs out in a tall tree across the neighbor's pasture.

But 'cept this mornin, we all stepped out the back door an it wuz sittin on our 'lectric pole.

Here's nuther look, sorry fur the cloudy skies makin it hard to see it's colors.

An nuther. Mommy thinks it's a red-tailed hawk. It made the right sound that she found online.
about Red-Tailed Hawks
 An it's got the right tail shape an stuff. Jus not very red-tailed.

We all kinda stood round on the top steps, includin PuffCat an ScooterCat while Mommy took the piccies. Then I wanted to come back in fur a cookie.

See yu 'round,  hawk burd!

  5. SHE's always admiring the birds and trying to find out what kind they are. We just like to chase them. But SHE says, they NEVER quite look like the samples in books or online. We like your hawk!
