That'll Wake You Right Up

A very large bird just crashed into my study window and fell stunned to our deck. When I raced downstairs, I found a red-tailed hawk (I think; they're the most common around here) rousing itself and looking around before it flew away.

Beautiful animal. I wish I'd had my camera.

The cats were going nuts, natch.

  1. How big was this bird, Susan? Wonder what he saw that caused him to try to fly through the glass.

    When I was a kid we used to get birds bouncing off the sliding glass door. Nothing as interesting as a hawk. Usually mocking birds and other local types.

    Hope your accident bird is ok.
