I’ve been watching the 2 gray squirrels that live in my yard, chasing each other up and down tree trunks and jumping from one tree to another, hiding their food in the one spot that looks like a grave – for almost 2 years. Earlier this evening the The Fierce Yorkie barked like mad out the back window at something in the yard. We looked and a hawk was there, pecking at the ground. ("ground" ha!) I grabbed the phone, took some pictures and realized he was pecking at something awfully large, not "probably a mouse" like the man had said.
I was moving away from the window having decided I did not want to know what the beast was eating when he TOOK OFF IN FLIGHT. There hung one of "my" gray (now dead and missing some innards) squirrels. ~sigh~
Bloody circle of life. Not in my yard, damnit!
