Once again the hawk left the area but by this time, I think it was coming out of its dazed state because it did not hop this time but it flew at a low level over to our bridal wreath hedge. And yes, the conversation was still taking place. I noticed that this hawk had somewhere along the line been injured as its tail feathers were pretty mangled and it had lost its leg on the right side.
Later that evening, the hawk came back and was standing on our old wagon.
Since that time in June, the hawk did return on the 24th of July and hung around our place for a good week. It still allowed me to get pretty close for photos but this time I wasn't too happy to have it return. It was getting the baby birds around our home. Other than the occasional sound of mamma birds squawking frantically, we hardly heard the happy sounds of birds in the mornings or throughout the day.
Now the hawk has left our home area, it's nice to hear all the birds, once again, singing in the mornings and throughout the day. I used to not like hearing the birds singing so bright and early (sometimes at 3 a.m.) in the mornings but now, I welcome the sound.
