I have a bird feeder in the backyard by my garden. Can you see it? The birds took a while to find it, but now they visit it quite frequently. Also, stupid squirrels also come to pick up the seeds the birds have dropped from my squirrel-proof bird feeder. (I am of the opinion that squirrels are just rats, and I don't think they are cute, and I wish they wouldn't come into my yard.) Anyway, I digress.
The other morning, I went out to check on my garden, and startled a hawk sitting in this tree. Besides scaring me, I thought nothing of said hawk. I had seen him before, camped out on my fence.
However, as I looked around, I noticed little tufts of feathers. It seems, by feeding the birds, I have brought the food chain to my backyard and somehow acquired a pet hawk. I think I will name him Fluffy.
