NATURE…sometimes it just plain sucks.
While doing yard work earlier today I watched as yet another Hawk swooped down to take out another pigeon with exacting accuracy. Oddly enough, this is actually the third time I’ve seen this go down and lately I’ve been watching all kinds of random wildlife lurking around the yard. On almost a daily basis I’ve been seeing Blue Heron’s, Wild Parrots, and all kinds of raptors including falcons and a bald eagle and it’s not only tripping me out but also making me that more cautious when it comes to planning the design for a koi pond. What’s even more weird to me is just how confident and cocky these hawks are. For a few minutes, I watched as the hawk plucked the pigeon and that’s when I decided to run into the house to grab my camera. By the time I came back he was still going to town and didn’t even seem to care that I walked up and started snapping away. A few minutes later I decided to walk up even closer and as I snapped away from just a few feet away it just looked at me without a care in the world.
