I was sitting in the backyard watching all the birds dining on millet when everyone suddenly took off. I assumed a predator was around somewhere. This beautiful hawk flew down, then landed on the fence. I assumed everyone had gotten away, but when I looked at the picture enlarged, it does look like she has someone. All of this happened in a matter of seconds. The hawk has to eat, but I am always sad for the little birds. On the other hand, I have seen how a mob of small birds can bring a raptor down. I know this is how things work. The relationships are symbiotic. We humans often forget that. Click on picture to enlarge.
