It happened fast. Looking out the GR window I saw a huge bird sail over the top of the pergola heading toward the South side of the yard. "Sweet" I said out loud as the Pres stood next to me. "What? What do you see?"
"Hon, didn't you see that huge bird? What was it? An owl? A hawk? Where did it go?" Scanning left and right in the now bare trees, I saw nothing. "There it is...on the ground. See it?" Because of the angle at which it was flying, I knew it had to be low.
A beautiful hawk had come in and got what it was after. Watching it tug on a small, gray, furry creature before it carried it to a higher perch to devour, I was glad. One less mole or mouse, I thought.
