Red-Tailed Hawk and Turkey update

I stopped in at Wildwood  Cemetery to check on the birds tonight.  I saw a hawk perched in one of its regular spots hunting.  A pair of house finches was very upset by the hawk and were very close to it in the same tree.   I thought they were very brave!  (I added pink arrows to show you where the finches are).  You can click on the photo if you want to enlarge it.

"Looks like a good snack!"

Way in the back of the cemetery, I spotted Tom Turkey with his new girlfriend.  I felt just like a proud mama.  He was strutting for her and showing all his fine tail feathers.  I hope I get to see their poults some day!

Lonely no more!

Tom's new girlfriend.
