We found it between the houses the other day. And being that this is the neighbor that never cleans up dog poop, I was guessing this thing was gonna sit there for another 10 years if I didn't reach over the fence and clean it up.
Thank goodness it was frozen solid because a) we were all sorta squeamish about picking it up and b) it would have been messy and icky to clean up otherwise. Blech.
Note the talons on that sucker. I'm thinking the little birdies at the feeder are singing a hip-hop version of "Ding Dong the Hawk is Dead" today. This bugger has been haunting my feeder for a long time.
And isn't it weird to just find a big, honkin' bird dead in your yard? I'm always finding sparrows, and we found a grackle dead by the pond the other day....but a hawk?! Criminy.
