A new visitor was on the hawk’s perch this morning, a formidable predator! ┬áHe (and I think it is a he) is a little smaller than the Swainson’s hawk who usually perches on this branch, but I am sure that he is every bit as effective. Hawks and owls are two of the birds of prey that we court with hawk perches and bird boxes, an important part of the rodent control.
