Wild Bird Wednesday #45
Link to Paying Ready Attention
The life of a Red Tail is anything but easy. This beautiful lady flew into my tree to escape the merciless harassment of the crows. Having found a quiet spot, she sat there for over an hour ... but, alas, I had to take my dog out so she was disturbed and flew to the next tree. The movement gave away her location and the pesky crows came back ...
This pair lives in my neighborhood. I often see them souring overhead and hear them calling to each other. I am sure there is a nest near by, but I don't look for it ... I want to leave them in peace to raise their young. Every year we get at least one juvenile exploring the possibility of squirrel ... they haven't learned the hard way yet. I am sure they are from this pair because they hang around awhile and then they are gone ... hopefully to a better place.
Don't get me wrong ... I love my little flock of smart crows. But, sometimes I wish they were a little less bully bird :) Have a Wonderful WBW!
