A Daily Hawk fix.....

The pair of hawks have been in the backyard a lot today.
A photo of one in the snow and then at the point of take-off.  Also a stop-motion video of a sequence of photos of the hawk taking flight from a branch.

Possum, Fox and Raccoon in the snow

Not many visits - but the possum, fox and raccoon were out to get some food - going through the snow.

An afternoon with hawks in the backyard

We had a visit from the two hawks that live in the area this afternoon. The male was on the ground, the female in the tree and a shot of both of them on branches.



Slightly different today....

This starts with a brief story.
At the start of November our car had to have a faulty sensor replaced.
On Sunday another sensor died!!!
When the shop told us about the second sensor, I ask what could be causing both to die.  
A little while they called with the answer : RODENTS.
The wires had been chewed through.  
We take care of the outside animals - and this is what they do :-).  Also we have two cats, who didn't guard the car..........

After the photos of the wires, there is a photo of the hawk in the backyard this morning.

A quiet night - before the snow....

Last night was quiet, a brave possum, two very fat raccoons, and then the rabbit - not seen for a while - just as the snow started....

City BBQ night for the wild life......

When-ever we go to City BBQ, they give us some scraps for the animals - plus the Texas Toast, that we don't eat.

The animals enjoy City BBQ as much as us.  The possums take the Texas Toast, the raccoon eats it in place, and the fox runs off with the pork shoulder bone.  Maybe they shouldn't use this as a ad campaign....
