What’s Up? – Heat and More Heat
Heat and More Heat
I don’t know about the weather where you live, but our weather was hot over 90ºF everyday, for the past week, and one single day we had heavy rain for a few hours when ended and the heat was up again and charged with humidity, making it very uncomfortable.
Last week I said I was going to trim some trees, I had not one opportunity because of the weather temperature.
Many of my birds are still molting and others are done with it. I’ve seen a Cooper’s Hawk chasing birds a bit too often for my taste. He always comes and tries catching birds, not very successfully I would say. Birds are very smart and fast and not so easy to catch. Hawks are better hunters of voles, snakes, or nestlings. Little birds spot the hawk and immediately fly to thickets and hope that the hawk will break his wing there. Of course, the hawk knows that strategy and simply ends the chase and go after something else.
