Why don't we let the rabbits run outside?.. he's a VERY good reason.. young redtail hawk. The mom is huge. She has a 5 ft wingspan. Think she could swoop down and take my husband Ed off with her if she wanted to. Of course, the lovable wag would be talking all the way over the horizon, lol!.. I love him to death but the hawk would drop him when he got to the subject of the difference between FM and AM.. or all of the known info on whales.. anyway, I digress. We love our backyard menagerie, and the raptors are a big part of it. They are so beautiful.. soaring, gorgeous reminders of the reality of life. Like finding a hawk right outside your back door. Oh, here comes my Ed.. he's already talking.. love it.
