the Birdfeeder...

Appears to have become a bird feeder. All evidence points to a visit by the neighborhood Sharp-shinned hawk, and the remains of his lunch. I am fairly certain Eurasian collared-dove was on the menu today.

The sharpies hunt us too now and then. They like members of the dove family on this coast as well, usually mourning doves.
