Close encounters of the bird kind
Last night my darling husband was out grilling pork chops on the grill. I am making potatoes and corn inside when he yells in - "HURRY, COME HEREEEEEEE NOWWWWWWWWWWWW!" I run towards the back deck, get half way there and he yells next, "BRING THE CAMERAAAAAAA." So I run back, grab the nearest camera, and run back out. I still do not know what is going on but hubby can barely speak he is so excited. He points toward the trees. I finally see what he is pointing at up on the electric wire, a red tailed hawk. It had landed on the house about 6 feet from him, sat there and then decided to fly to the other side of the yard and perch on the wire for our picture taking pleasure. Enjoy.
