The hawks decided to check out our deck
Just over a week ago I trapped a mole in our yard and threw it out in the back yard hoping the hawks would take it. It took several hours, but they finally did. Now, they come back all the time scanning our yard for more rodents. They take turns sitting on a branch directly above where the mole was and groom themselves for 15, 20 minutes or more. Very fun to watch.
