Wild Birds: A Hungry Cooper's Hawk

I happened to be walking past my sunroom window when I thought I saw something so I stopped and backed up a step or two and noticed this hawk. Of course I grabbed my camera thinking he would fly before I got a photo. It turns out he didn't fly because he was protecting his lunch. I couldn't tell what it was he had. I'm hoping it was a mole or mouse and not my resident chipmunk. Honestly I didn't want to watch too closely fearing the chipmunk had been the target. I haven't seen the chipmunk in a few days and maybe he's hiding. The chipmunk lived under the oak tree that is just out of camera shot behind the hawk. Still hoping little chippy shows up.

My apologies if you have visited this past week and I didn't get back to you. I have some issues with my immune system that has been giving me a fit this week. I hope to be able to catch up on visits later today. Thanks to all of you who have left comments on my last two posts. I appreciate each and every one of you.

Good Fences

 
I might be stretching just a bit this week on a fence.
This is the 'fence' around the basketball game at Chuck E. Cheese Pizza. 
 

Who is that behind the fence? 
 
 
It is my oldest granddaughter Lily!
She was enjoying her sister's birthday party.

This is little sis Lucy.
Lucy turned six.
This Grammy does not know where the time has gone.

Wild Birds: Canada Geese

Baby geese in the shade and away from some circling crows.

This little guy seemed a little older and was swimming in the water.
He was the only one of his size.
 
He waded in the water and seemed to enjoy it.
 
Sleeping so peacefully.
 
I think the little guy on the left was trying to tell me something. :)
