Wednesday Vignette May 17, 2017
I heard a songbird shrieking and realized the songbird was shrieking at a...is that a Cooper's Hawk? Jeez, wish I had my camera...huh, it's in my hand! Quick! Click!
The hawk was looking for the songbird's nest--or at least the songbird thought so. I think the shrieker was the hooded Oriole that constantly flies down and pecks flowers off Aloe pseudorubroviolacea.
Or was the hawk looking for lizards?
It did not find the nest, or a lizard, and so flew away. The songbird shrieks stopped. The garden was quiet once again.
All sorts of drama happen in a garden. It's not a living room full of furniture that no one ever sits on. It's...a...living...room.
