Quail Drama


Today I heard a distressed noise from the quail. I went back to see what was wrong, thinking maybe a cat were bothering them. Instead there was a hawk sitting on top of the cage! I think it was a cooper's hawk. The quail have been good for our wildlife viewing opportunities- they've attracted possums, raccoons, and now this hawk. Stay safe little peepers!

Yikes!!!!!

You know the pair of Great Horned Owls we heard who, hoohoo, who-ing outside our bedroom window a couple of nights ago? I learned that they can tackle something as big as a RABBIT!
I've been explaining this to Sam & Rosy when they look pitiful about being kept inside at night.
