The farmer and I were leaving to go to town when he spied something by our pool.
Now have you ever heard of a hawk swimming or at least contemplating taking a few laps around?
He actually let me get about three feet from him. This is known as a Coopers Hawk or just a plain old chicken hawk. It is unusual for hawks to just hang around while there are people close by but this guy seemed to just be waiting for something.
"Maybe if I hide behind this blade of grass they won't notice." I think he was waiting for us to leave so he could make a visit to his little hen friends.
