Apparently they do! I thought it was a dog at first until I saw and heard the sound coming right out of his mouth. New one for me! They never cease to amaze. I have heard them scream before (sounds like a woman screaming), especially during mating season, which is happening now. I heard one screaming as he ran past my house a couple of weeks ago. A little scary at first. The bark really surprised me, but I got a chuckle out of!
This Cooper’s Hawk was hanging out on a wire outside our house on Friday checking out the little birds. I added a texture to one of the images for a more “artsy” look. He did not leave with a bird, luckily for us, unlucky for him!
I watched a bunch of geese (about 50!) giving themselves baths. It was quite amusing! I cannot believe some of the positions they can get themselves into. They were sticking their chests out so far at times I thought they would burst. Apparently they were quite proud of themselves!
