Visitors 7 Home 0

Jan 22, 2015

And the visitors just keep on scoring.  No one on the home court for defense.

Early moring at the Capitol.  The Visitor…

Relaxing… the equivalent of us humans crossing our legs

RT0122 (2 of 14)

Noon time …  A Cooper’s hawk.  Transient or looking for territory?

Well, if the Cooper’s looking for territory, he won’t find it in the Capitol because the Visitor is close by

Of course, these turkeys don’t count 🙂

RT0122 (9 of 14)

As I circled around the Capitol,  all of a sudden a whole flock of Robins took off from the trees and from the ground.  Why?  This was why.

RT0122 (10 of 14)

I’m not sure if this was the same Cooper’s hawk I saw earlier.  It could be…

RT0122 (11 of 14) RT0122 (12 of 14) RT0122 (14 of 14)

 

But the fact that these Raptors can just come and go without any resident challenging them is worrisome.

Where’s Mama and Papa?  The last I saw them was at the SECU.  Hopefully, they’re still okay, not hurt or captured.

Captured would be against NC state and federal law against having birds-of-prey.  YOU CAN’T have them as pets!

Here’s to still hoping the home boys will be back… soon.
