TWO! I have *never* seen them hunt in tandem before.

The first hawk swooped down, appearing suddenly from above the awning and right back up above again in a half-circle to herd the prey. Then immediately after a panicked mourning dove bonked its head on the awning and staggered away out of there, the hawk’s mate burst out from among the elephant ears on the patio and after it.

Two! I had no idea the second one was there.

Maybe come spring I’ll finally get to see a Cooper’s fledgling toddling around my amaryllis pots again–it’s been a few years.

Meantime, the baby blanket: it is celebrating Aftober after all. I DID it!!

A nice warm soak is good for anyone(anything).

Yay for your Aftober accomplishment! I’m trying to put the finishing touches on a few small items, since you brought up the challenge.

I got to wear my Aftober project today, if only briefly when I went out to the farmers’ market for apples, acorn squash, and such. Then I got too hot (well, it’s acrylic, after all), so took it off when I got home. Congratulations on the lovely soak!
