I knew there had to be some creature outside the other day when Buddy went crazy and whined pitifully to go outside. I looked all around the back woods hoping to spot a fox or coyote or bobcat but couldn't see anything. Then I looked up to find this chubby hawk contently resting on a branch. Apparently he hasn't missed any mice, rabbit, chipmunk or squirrel buffets lately. Let's just hope he doesn't have a taste for red cockapoos.
