PS -- Enjoyed seeing an adult Red-tailed Hawk on the ground, eyeing a
Woodchuck from about 12 feet; the latter was paying it no attention,
turning its back to the hawk, feeding away. We suspect the Chuck had
charged the hawk a bit earlier, as the hawk seemed a bit perplexed -- it
was obviously thinking about a big lunch, but this guy was just too big to
tangle with! The hawk flew off after about 30 seconds -- hopefully better
luck with a squirrel.
