The wife and I were walking our puppies this morning about 7 AM. Out from the hedgerow waddles a possum. A few seconds late possum #2 follows. Have seen one before but never two. Now to the front yard. Our friend stopped and said a hawk was on the ground under the bird feeder. Seems to be dove feathers. Carried off the dove as nothing else was left besides the feathers. A few years ago, I saw a fox running along the same path of the possums. A friend lived east of town. They put a bird bath in the back yard. Well. doves would get water and fall asleep on the edge of the bird bath. A hawk learned if he roosted on a nearby tree, he could get an easy meal. They watched one day. A brown streak, a puff of feathers and the dove flew off in the talons of the hawk.
