The Ugly Truth about my Dirty Dishes~

Homestead Barn Hop #36

This guy was out my kitchen window today… not far from my Chicken Coop! Dangerous, I know, for the chickens. HAWK 1 cropped
He was busy doing my favorite thing for birds of all kinds to do in my yard… he was filling up on GRASSHOPPERS!  {SMILE} HAWK 2 cropped
 He looks distracted or maybe cautious, doesn’t he? There actually was a squirrel ‘flirting with disaster’  on the ground near the Oak tree out the kitchen window. (Not pictured)  HAWK 3 cropped
I’ve been spotted… here he is…
Looking right at me! 
He flew away after this and I didn’t get anymore pictures of him.

SEE what happens when you have a window above your kitchen sink… 
dirty dishes 003
…AND YOUR binoculars close at hand? 

These aren’t just excuses folks… these are legitimate reasons! 

God bless you and Thanks for reading!
(I’ve got to get back in the kitchen now…funs, over.)

You can read more about why all the displaced wild life in my yard HERE .

Hahaha - we once had a brave hawk knocking (pecking) on the hen house door! They are brazen, aren't they?

But what I enjoyed most about this post was seeing that you, like me, hand-wash your dishes! If we're not distracted by the goings on outside the window, we actually get done w/dishes faster than those using a dishwasher!

BTW - thanks for stopping by!

I don't know how some people survive without a window in their kitchen! But some do. Love your hawk! Ann

hey, it was so fun running into you at Lowe's!

Your hawk photos are great! Hopefully all he filled up on were grasshoppers while visiting your yard. I live in the city and a hawk flew into my back yard while I was sitting out in it. They are beautiful creatures!
Hugs, Cindy

Hey there - I just emailed you. I though I'd mention it in case it got dumped into the Spam folder!

Thanks for the visit!

Shoot, and what I see out my kitchen window is an old mattress leaning up against the college kids' house next door...
