Yesterday I was out in the play yard with the puppies when one of the red tailed hawks flew over, casting a menacing shadow onto the snow-covered ground like something out of a horror movie! 😯
So of course I hurried and got the babies to safety and then grabbed my camera, hoping to get some good shots of him when I saw he had landed in the pine trees across the street.
He perched up there for what seemed like forever.
I decided to hit the record button on my camera as soon as I sensed he was about to take flight and I’m glad I did because I was able to capture the scene just as it unfolded (these are the screenshots from the video I took).
I think it was a younger red tail, maybe their fledgling, and I guess they were fighting over territory or something. I watched for a while more until they flew off and then I went back out to let the babies back out to play.
Here’s the video:
Seeing that makes me not want to let those babies back out until they are full grown and able to fight back against these monsters! 😄
