Apparently In These Parts...

...crunchy frozen earthworms are a favorite snack of the Red-Shouldered Hawk.

We have a mated pair of them that spend considerable time in our front yard. They perch in the two large Bradford Pear trees and swoop down to pick up the crunchy worms. We have a yard that dries verrrrry slowly after any rainstorm, so the worms are always at the surface of the lawn.

Free food... no work involved, that's a good thing to keep them around!

I normally avoid feelings of envy but I can't escape it this time!

Well, spring will be here before too long and I'll have My Osprey to watch again. Not out on the front yard though.
