Little Birdies Beware!

Today Alan came running from Brooklyn's room -where he and Dale were supposed to be putting away toys- calling me with some urgency to come look at the bird on the birdbath "with a white chest and brown spots."

Because he was so enthusiastic about it, I left what I was doing and went to the window in Miss B's room, expecting to see a little songbird.  But this is what I saw: 
I grabbed the camera and first took a picture through the screen and then started creeping closer and closer to our hawkish guest.  I was amazed at how close I was able to get before it flew away!

Thankful again to be home with my kiddos all day every day, and happy my boys enjoyed this unusual bird-sighting as much as I did!

Not just little birdies but little squirrels and little kittens. I have hawks and owls in my neighborhood and have seen them going after all kinds of things. I love them though. They are amazing birds. Nature is a beautiful thing.
