We saw the red tail hawk today. He’s a small one and the crows were chasing him away from the yard when we saw him.
He was still big enough to do some damage. We don’t want him to hurt one of the smaller birds in the yard or our precious bunny.
I feel really conflicted because the hawk is a beautiful bird.
To reward the crows for their hard work, we put out piles of peanut butter crackers. They love those.
It’s nice to fight nature with nature, but the crows are eating lots of food these days. Also, our mocking birds hate the crows. But for the most part, the wild birds seem to get along pretty well.
Our wild rabbit is living in the yard a couple of doors down from our house. As long as he’s safe and happy, we’ll keep putting out food for him too.
We have a lot of happy animals living around our house.
