Raptors are sexy!/Mailbag

I saw this Red-Tailed Hawk on top of one of our bluebird houses this morning!

He is about to take off, because it took so long for the camera to focus on him.

Here he is in the tree behind the birdhouse.

After one of these burns it is common to find a bunch of toasted golf balls left behind.

Well, what do you think?

It took me about 5 mins to find these along #11.

Gee, would those qualify as an invasive species? ;)

They are non-native, but they don't crowd out other species so much that they die off. In addition, we have a natural predator (rangers) that will keep the population under control by removing all of the balls they find.
