My daughter saw a hawk on the front porch today. But it was such a fleeting look that she wasn't sure. It seemed too small.
Then a couple hours later I saw , from the corner of my eye. a couple of birds flying outside my den window, and one of them hit the window quite hard. And right after, a hawk landed up in my mulberry tree followed by a second one.
I realized that it was a fledgling learning to fly and hunt with the parents watching out for him (her).
No birds were under or around my window so I think all was well.
It was a cool gift to see on this Fourth of July.

That is so cool...hawks are a rarity to see.

Not here they're not. But rare to see a fledgling. Very cool.

Yes. very cool indeed. I am so happy for all of you to get to see them, never mind a fledgling...Lucky you.

WE saw them a lot when we lived out on "the farm" but obviously, we do not here in town.
