Nervous hens

Two hawks are stalking our hens. I've learned to run outside and look to the trees when the girls start cackling in distress. I usually find a hawk, or sometimes two sitting in a tree. One is large, one is small. A male and his mate? More likely a parent and a young one.

Here is the small hawk sitting on the tree house above the hen's run.

a little too close for comfort there...

This morning I heard a rukus and hurried outside to see not one..not two..but surprise!
3 hawks!! A mom and dad, and a young one?
This pole is in the next backyard...

They are beautiful to watch.

Just leave the girls alone, okay?
