Prowling Predators...By Land and By Air

This morning has been quite distracting.  My cats kept running to windowsills, from one side of the house to the other.  I finally joined them with binocs and camera in hand.  I wasn't able to capture the action, only the culprit...a solid, black cat with a white bib and socks, trying to take on two turkeys!  He had them on the run   but he finally got tired and left.
 Next up was this Sharp-shinned hawk, I could have been Cooper's, but I think it was smaller.  I ran to an upstairs window that doesn't have a screen so my shots wouldn't be too terrible.


  1. wow, you sure had quite the show. I take that was not your cat.

  2. Apparently your backyard had turned into nature's battlefield. Mine is way too sedate. Maybe a big GSD keeps the predator types at bay.... :)
