Agave and Hawks

Sunday, December 27th, 2015

Recently we have been seeing hawks in our neighborhood. The past week there was one perched in the top of the agave. Yes, the agave still stands. I watched the hawk for several minutes. It was grooming itself until a pair of doves attempted to land on the agave. Suddenly, it stretched out its wings and took flight after the startled doves.

Yesterday there was a thump on the kitchen door. We found this little hawk.

Hawk in Courtyard

We have a bird feeder in the courtyard that attracts finches, sparrows, blue jays, and doves. Perhaps the hawk came for breakfast. After several minutes the hawk flew away.
