This looks like a spooooooky night on Halloween but it was 8:30 am on a Sunday morning, October 5th and it's the sun shining through our Walnut tree.
Maybe the mist was coming off of the pond, I'm not sure but it was weird.
The waterer stays perfectly clean, it's up off the ground kinda high so I pushed a skid up close so the littler guys could reach.
Remember the eight little guys that the wonderful Bronze mamas diligently sat on for a month and have been taking so good care of? Well, we lost one real early.
And then there were four....rotten, lousy, #$%&*#@ hawks!
Friday, all that was left of one was his two little wings, bitten off and left there, it took the whole body and flew away with it. They are the smallest birds that we have left.
Does anyone know a good hawk deterrent? He has been sitting out on that same Walnut tree off and on this morning, I had been watching for him when I noticed the mist in the pictures above. Uh oh, Kevin just told me that the mama and the babies are down by the pond, I better go and watch them.
Til next time,
