Backyard Visitor Getting Brave

We were all a bit shocked at dinner tonight when this guy stopped by the deck (right by the back door) looking for his own dinner. I think it is a sharp shinned hawk.




Guess we weren't the only ones who were hungry.

Oh my gosh, how cool!!! Did your boys go crazy?! I sure would have ... I'm jealous -- the birds around here in NJ are just lame. OK -- that's not fair, I know ... they're lovely creatures. :) But a hawk? Man, you can't compare! :)

What a beautiful dinner guest. We never have hawks in our yard. I wonder if it has to do with the two BIG dogs and a cat?

wow! I've never seen a hawk come up near people like that or look for food that isn't alive. That's really cool.
Nathan is sitting next to me and he's upset that I clicked the comments section and the 'birdy' went away. He loves birds.
