Our neighbors love teacup chihuahuas. They let their favorite out once to make a backyard run and when they checked on it 20 minutes later a hawk was tearing strips off the dead dog and eating them. NOT the image one would hope to have of a favored pet. The guy bought a pellet rifle and lurked in the bushes for a couple of weeks after that, but I don't think he got a shot.

Hawks and Squirrels
This morning when I headed to the studio I noted a fresh killed fox squirrel at the corner. I wondered if the neighborhood Redtails would scarf it up. At 11 a buteo as big as a chicken was standing on it. (scroll down and click "older posts" for a photo of our neighborhood hawks.)
