Dratted Chickenhawks.....

We've managed to acquire a couple of chickenhawks in the neighborhood.

This does not make She Who Must Be Obeyed happy, because she likes to feed birds.  Little, regular birds.  But chickenhawks like to EAT those little, regular, birds--and chipmunks, bats, squirrels, and bunnies.

Since we've gotten here, the bats disappeared first, then the chipmunks, then a lot of the little birdies, and now we're noticing that the squirrel population is down, too.

Time to haul out the pellet gun, eh?

Plant a couple of evergreen bushes near the feeders. That will help the small birds hide from the chickenhawks.
