We don't have a picture of him tonight, but the hawk taken to Operation Wildlife was indeed a juvenile red shouldered hawk. They get mighty big!
The staff there has named him "Rooster", as he was vanquished by one. His only injury is the loss of dignity and some flight feathers in the tussle with Rocky, so they will keep him there until his feathers have grown back in, and then release far from our home.
So tonight, Keith came home after me, and went out to do chores. He found Buffy the Polish hen hanging upside down in the fence for the second time this year, and was able to loosen her. She appears to be allright, but we will see tomorrow. While he was doing that, Lilly became very agitated, and Keith realized there was a possum in the henyard with him.
Keith 1, Possum zero.
I'm sorry, but we have lost way too many birds lately.
