We're all having a lazy Sunday but we wanted to show you what Mommy and Daddy saw along the highway last weekend. We'll actually let Mommy do the post today so we'll go nap while she does...
Mombean here: Last Sunday as we were driving along a highway, we saw two hawks on the side of the road. One hawk had its wings outstretched, the other was standing in front of it. Of course I immediately thought one of them had been hit by a car and needed help so we turned around to go back to check on them and call the Chintimimi Wildlife Rehabiliation if necessary. When we came back one hawk was now sitting up on a power line and the one with outstretched wings had moved off the shoulder of the road more and we noticed blood on its chest so I was thinking the worst. I called Chintimini but got voicemail so we pulled up closer to see if we could do something.
As we watched the hawk to determine if it was hurt because of its outstretched wings we realized it was eating something so was just protecting its meal.
I had never seen anything like this before and it was quite incredible to see nature in action. Hawks are truly beautiful, powerful and intelligent birds of prey and no, the cats didn't even ask why we didn't bring one home after they saw our photos!
