So far the weather has turned cold cloudy with sunny periods and bits of snow flying about here and there but no accumulation thankfully , then we have had rain and thunderstorms over the nights so much up and down its confusing for everyone .
I have now noticed why my feeders have been more quiet then normal . I thought it was from feral cats lurking about but Miggs keeps them at bay mostly then I thought the transition of migration maybe why as it had been in the past but then I saw this fellow from my window in the back garden, oh so that's why I said to myself .
Mr Hawk has been hanging about pegging off my birdies from the feeders and has been using our yard as his buffet , why just the other day I saw him fly by swoop in and land on the ground snapped up a bird and take off with it in his talon's , it all happened so fast , circle of life I know and Mr Hawk has to eat to but it still makes me feel bad for the little birds .
As he took off , all stayed quite for a bit , then the other birds felt it was safe again and came back to feed on the ground .
They all are keeping an eye on the sky’s now I tell ya .
It is the month of wacky weather , returning birds , time change one hour ahead , more day light and the return of spring , WOOHOO ! so regardless of what mother nature has to throw at us this month of March and whether it roar's in like a lion and goes out like a lamb or vise versa I find it is still the most exciting month of all new and returning things to come .
Until next time .
