The Other Guest in Our Garden

I posted "The Summer of Pies" the day before this guest, a cooper hawk, showed up on Second Apple Tree, so I did not include her (him?). For some reason, when she showed up, the other guests left (except for a lone chickadee on a feeder, who must have calculated that he was not worth her attention).


  1. Wow, that one's so big that it could pick up a cat or a small dog. I have one of similar size in my yard and it freaks me out when it flies by!


  2. Carol and Bill - Thank you - I have relayed your compliments to Daughter #2, who took the picture.

    Donna - Yes, that hawk lives around here and visits our yard periodically - but it's always a bit startling to see it fly in.
