Nice pose with my cosmos, huh?
This big, beautiful creature stayed in the yard for 2 hours this morning and another hour in the afternoon. I saw her catch two mice and watched her go through many foiled attempts. She stayed out by the "prairie experiment", a haven for mice and snakes, and she's a smart bird to do so. It was like fast food for a raptor. May I say it again that it's good to have some "untidiness" in your yard?!
I guess the visitor who left a hawk feather last night after accepting our offer was this girl.
Ahh...a breakfast of fresh mouse. I jumped up and down when I saw that she had caught something. I didn't get a shot of her eating the second mouse. But I was just as happy about it.
She landed on the ground to possibly grab a snake, by the way she was stepping and jumping. But no dice.
