Outside my windows

We live quite near a large park, but I'm still occasionally stunned by the amount of wildlife we enjoy in our yard.

Outside one window today, a mommy hummingbird on a nest. I'm so excited!



Outside the other window, within minutes of noticing the mommy, I saw a hawk having breakfast. It's kind of hard to see in the picture. I didn't want to go outside and disturb it. Whatever it was eating is in the tree down and to the right of it.


It wasn't the hummingbird. I checked.

I saw the hawk and immediately worried about that hummingbird, but you know, those little suckers are fast - I bet it could outfly a hawk.

Wow - cool! Remember - do NOT turn the fan on!
