Watching like a hawk

Out late with friends, let me write up real quick…

The peach trees are showing the earliest signs of life.

There was a Cooper’s hawk a few days ago that I didn’t see on the fence till I was in the middle of opening the slider door. It glanced up briefly–and preened, tucking that head well into that outstretched wing. Clearly I did not bother it.

A dark shadow on the awning–and a Cooper’s hawk in the tree just past the fence. Wait–are there two? As if to answer, that shadow turned into a hawk flying to the other one. Two!

And another sighting, curving right right at the window.

Seems to me we are coming up quickly on nesting season, then. Territory has been claimed.

I’m glad they have come back to you. Seems more like home now. Barbara

Nesting season – how exciting! We are currently at the marina in Florida getting the boat ready for our Bahamas voyage. I am trying to catch up a little on my blog reading and touching base as I have an internet connection and wanted you to know that I am thinking of you. We stopped at Dauphin Island, Alabama on our way and my sailing friend gifted me with a wonderful knit hat! I am in the process of crocheting her a shopping bag and hope to get it in the mail to her before we leave port. Glad to hear that things seem to be progressing along normally with your various adventures. I will touch base again when next I have a decent connection. ~chris
