After the past few weeks of below freezing temperatures and a heavy snow storm, it appears that spring has kicked in the past couple of days.
With the spring comes the migration of birds. The wintering birds have seemed to have gotten up and left. But the southern wintering birds are starting to arrive. I was enjoying some Red Headed ducks which I’ve never seen at the manor, when in swooped a Red Shoulder Hawk.
Left on the iced river was a fish. The hawk was so thrilled to have found the fish without having to work for it, he did the “I found a fish dance!”
Once found, he guarded the fish like a guard dog. Making sure no one came in to take his newly found prize.
He caught sight of me and gave me the stare.
It wasn’t me, I swear but someone caused him to take off. Leaving his prize on the ice. Perhaps he’ll come back when no one is looking.
