Hawks at the Bird Feeder

Northern Cardinal at Feeder

Northern Cardinal at Feeder

I have been keeping bird feeders full at both houses here at the Double Circle Ranch. I enjoy seeing the variety of birds we get here. Some I can’t identify. I am really looking forward to Bob Luce’s birding class so I can learn more. Every morning we have 20-40 birds – except yesterday. There were no birds at the feeder. I went out to see if squirrels or some critter ( javelina raid the seed on the ground) had eaten everything. The problem wasn’t lack of seed – it was hawks. We had a Red Tailed and a Sharp-Shinned Hawk in the trees waiting to catch their breakfast. They flew before I could get a picture. Today the birds are back.
