Today I came downstairs to find a hawk sitting 3 feet away from our front door. After looking closer, I saw that it had a starling under his talons! He was just sitting there, staring into our house. After researching it, I think it was a red-tailed hawk. Red-tailed hawks live in North America and have reddish-brown tails. After a while we scared him way, hoping he would take his messy breakfast with him. Sadly, he didn't. He probably left a very hard worked for meal in our front yard.


  1. What a wonderful description of the hawk at your door. I was able to create a real image of it and its unfortunate victim (ugh)! Nature is certainly interesting to observe. I have been watching the squirrels on my deck, and I am happy to report that they are still finding some acorns. You had some clever and nicely constructed phrases in your story. I will be looking forward to your reports. Love you, Gramma

  2. Maybe he wanted some salt for his meal.
