I was at the desk a few mins ago when I heard a huge boom. I looked at the display window and there was a red-tailed hawk on the ground in front of it. It must have been chasing a pigeon and crashed into the glass. It knocked itself silly--stunned and couldn't move for about 5 mins. I watched it. There was only about 6 inches between us. That's the closest I've ever been to one. It soon recovered and flew away.
Red-tailed Hawks remind me of my Grandfather Cox. I like to think that this one was sent to say hi and Merry Christmas. And that Granddaddy loves me and wanted to let me know.
