Bump and Thump
Just had to post this. This morning we have been having a lot of bird dogging around here. First, we heard a bump and noticed some type of hawk landing on the railing by our breakfast room. I grabbed the digital camera and shot a couple of photos. This bird checked out both of our bird feeders and landed on the rod iron fence rail as well. I don't know what kind of hawk it is. I know that it is not a red-tailed hawk. Ten minutes later we heard a thump and noticed that a crazy mockingbird had flown into the breakfast room window and just about knocked itself out before flying off leaving feathers still attached to our window. Now that is just bird crazy.
