Rough Morning?

Some days it’s just not worth rolling out of the nest, eh?

Stepping out the front door this morning to look for my morning paper (undelivered again, second time this month), I noticed a bird sitting on the grass off to the right, near the border of our yard. Even with peripheral vision through the bush, something looked odd about the way he was sitting, so I took a step forward to get a better view.

It was a hawk. Which promptly flew off when I took that step. With part of his breakfast still in his beak. Leaving behind him only what’s shown in this post’s snapshot.

Yes, I know, the hawk was only doing what he had to do to eat. So I would not wish the hawk warts. Still, my heart is with the turtledove. I know the feeling, far too well.
