We have deemed 2010 The Year of the Red-Tail Hawk. (not sure what the Chinese restaurant placemats say) Today mom called and said “that hawk is back out there perched on the big plastic owl !” “Do you mean the plastic owl that we put out there to scare the hawks away?” Sure enough there he was! Luckily we had not let the ladies out – and he stayed there long enough for us to shoot a few grainy photos through the upstairs window.
So on this cold, windy, first day of the New Year, out goes Karl (my husband and resident Appalachian engineer) to further fortify our ‘fowl fort’.. Tomorrow will tell if the reinforcements and pie tins fluttering in the wind will work.
