Park Yourself

I needed the park worse than chores needed doing. Just after this photo was snapped, a large, red tailed hawk flew from the tree above us. I suppose we interrupted him. I'm thankful I wasn't shat upon, but really-I could do without the large, screaming raptor thing in a city park of all places! Imagine. Hrumph, what do they think this is, some sort of nature preserve? Wild birds up the park-what's next?!
We kept finding large feathers that could only have come from hawks scattered about. *shudder* there must be more of the bastards aloft.

In the end, we had a nice bit of exercise, came home to drink iced coffee, and drew the weekend to a close in a pleasant way. The weather is expected to be cooler this upcoming week, so perhaps there's more park time awaiting (I'm soooo wearing a helmet next time).

Big bird means big shit!! Glad you didn't get dirtied by the bird.

Yeah, the raptors are coming to get ya!
I bet Danny is laughing at your discomfort - he, on the other hand, will have been delighted with your encounter with the wildlife. Just don't wear a big hat with fruit on it, the birds will think it's snack time... xxx

I think they eat rodents and smaller birds-and really, who wants those on a hat?

Go on and laugh-but that stinker was close!
