|An early artist sketch of our stalker
It does make good sense for such a bird of prey. Chicken mania has swept our neighborhood. A month ago or so, our neighbor also picked up 3-4 hens. Last week, I talked to a neighbor a couple of blocks away who also has some backyard hens. There was even a self-guided tour of coops in the neighborhood last Sunday. I think we could lobby the powers that be to christen our neighborhood, the Chicken District. Maybe not, if that hawk calls in the re-enforcements. I must have a picture of this bird in action, if it is indeed what we have on our hands. More to come, I hope. Until then, I'll have my eye to the sky while trying to figure out what to do.
