Just when I thought I was getting used to the semi-rural area I live in now, I had an interesting experience this morning. I was coming home from Kinkos and close to our subdivision when I saw something hopping across the road. It was a HUGE!! hawk trying to carry off it's prey. Whatever it had in its talons was too big for the hawk to be able to fly off with, so it was hopping and dragging it across the road. Gross. Then yesterday, we finally found the cuplrit of our nighttime noise. While waiting at the bus stop, the kids all saw an owl hanging out in the nearby tree. It was just sitting there staring at the kids. Geoff's small enough to be its prey! Buzz off birds! Aren't owls supposed to be asleep during the day anyway??
