Wildlife Wednesday

 Our neighbor calls this a Chicken Hawk, we couldn't find any info on Chicken Hawks so we do not know what it's proper name is? Mommy thinks it might eat me so I stays inside when it is outside.

 It seems to think Daddy built the Humming Bird Cottage for it, silly hawk.

Mommy says it is looking for mice and other small mammals.

  1. She (I don't know why I think she looks like a she) almost looks like she's carved from the same wood!

    Stay safe Artemisia!

  3. Says a lot about what I did as a kid, but I thought immediately of Foghorn Leghorn's nemesis in the cartoons - he was a chicken hawk.

    Seriously, there are a few hawks that are referred to as a chicken hawk - the Cooper's Hawk is probably the most common reference (some people call a Red Tail, our most common, a chicken hawk, though that does not look like a baby red tail to me).

  5. We hafta admit that chicken-hawk makes us feel nervous. It's got beady eyes. Don't go near it.

  6. I think it is bigger than a humming bird! I am glad they are keeping you inside. I think he might be a cat hawk so that he eats kittys...

  13. Is that your TAIL? I thought maybe there was a wild animal attached to your bottom.

    I don't think I ever saw your tail on display like that before.
