I'm up here, over to the left...
do you see me?
Oh, good good!
I'm in sort of a predicament here.
If you could by chance make some noise.
Like clap your hands, yell, slam the door real hard,
let the cat out,
or maybe knock on the windows real hard...
sort of like you do when I'm doing up-side-down acrobats
from your bird feeders?
I would be forever grateful to you,
and maybe the guy over there to your lower right
would take a hike...
This squirrel owes me big.
I saved his little furry be-hind,
not before moving in closer to the hawk
and snapping a few pictures.
I'm not that familiar with birds of prey...a Coopers Hawk, Sharp-Shinned Hawk?
His coloring is quite handsome against the crisp-clear blue autumn sky.
You would think that a squirrel and a hawk in the same photo would not be a good thing,
if you were the squirrel.
it was the photographer here
that was in more of a panic,
then the squirrel.
The said photographer
couldn't bear seeing squirrel smorgasbord
in her back yard.
The squirrel was probably safer in the tree then on the ground.
Can hawks make a kill in a tree?
I'm guessing no, their wingspan wouldn't allow it.
Any bird of prey experts?
Please weigh in,
inquiring squirrel minds
want to know!
Have a good evening,
