What a week. The fledgling hawk above, a broad-wing about 8 inches tall, hung out at the side of the road all day on Monday. He (my assumption) fell out of his nest and wandered the road for the day. Right before I snapped this photo, he had hopped up to the tire of the car and whistled, as all broad-wings do, and I am sure he was saying, “Are you my mother?” I still own the original book from when I was 5, so, I am sure that was the question.
Chuck and I watched and herded him off the road, and finally his mother landed in the top of a maple and they had a nice family chat. I am sure she was saying, “I told you not to look over the edge of the nest!” And, “Don’t talk to strangers.” He was at that point hopping up a small tree and spreading his wings and coasting down. I did see him soaring 2 days later. Following mom, and not quite as high
We also have a small doe hanging around. She loves to chat. Chuck says she is just being nice to me to get to my veggie garden. And Chuck saw 2 barred owls, young!, sitting in a tree in the back yard scaring the robins.
Whew, and the garden is growing, veggies and snakes. Lots of snakes this year.
