A nice, light, non-controversial story. Anyone else have much luck at their bird feeders this winter? I've been sadly disappointed the last two years, we had a hawk take up residence in a neighbors tall tree and birds no longer visit the feeder near my kitchen window. I hung another in a different tree that gives them shelter from the hawk, but it's not somewhere that I can watch.

I wish i had that hawk. I love hawks.
I have turkey vultures. They are huge and really ugly. Last count i had 12 but i think its now closer to 16. They chase everything away.
BTW hummingbirds love to build nest around hawks.
Look into it. You would like them.

Hummingbirds, huh? Maybe I'll check into that this summer.

I'd rather the hawk take a hike, and bring back my cardinals, finches, etc.
