Uprooted Magnolia

On Guard

This hawk was circling above me protecting her nest. As if I can climb her tree and come get her babies. As if.
I’m not too wild about this creature. She and her hubby are attacking the wild turkeys. I stumbled upon a crime scene in the meadow yesterday below their nest. I know it’s survival of the fittest out here but goodness, don’t attack my gobble gobbles!

      Thanks Sheila! I couldn’t believe I actually captured the detail of the feathers…I thought that was cool too.

    These pictures are utterly beautiful, utterly! I have never heard a meadowlark, I now so wonder what they sound like. You live in a heavenly place. I’m sure there’s lots of work, but it is so beautiful.

        Thank you – I will do that. I would love to hear it. A meadowlark- just the word is poetic.

        Ha ha! I just clicked the link & my cat’s ears pricked up & she looked around alarmed. Sounded a bit like a baby crying! But more melodic, to be true – thank you 🙂

        My Matilda did the same thing when I hit the first one, the screeching one. But the Western Meadowlark is much prettier. And is what we hear all day long. I agree, just the name is poetic. 🙂
