Morning Report, October 23, 2009

Mandarin, Little Brother, Rosenquist, Nico, Bucky, Trinidad, Honey Bunny and Horsey ate this morning. Didn't see Fuji.

It's much cooler this morning, near 50°, but it's going to be sunny and clear all day.

I saw a couple of Hawks flying directly over our block yesterday. They're probably Coopers Hawks judging from their coloration and size. They look like Red Tailed Hawks but much smaller. The adults are about the size of an adult cat, so shouldn't be a threat to our guys. I understand that smaller birds and to a lesser degree, Squirrels, are their favorite prey. Many of the local birds begin sounding the alarm when these Hawks are nearby. The Hawks are pretty noisy too, with a very distinct and loud call. It sounds like the monster call from a 60s Sci-Fi B-movie.
