Hunting


Yep. You read the title of this post correctly. This little visitor to our yard was "busy" hunting. S/he was concentrating intently on a hole in the ground that belongs to some chipmunks. (Mom used a telephoto to get this picture). She stayed stock still for about 30 minutes, but I don't think any chipmunks appeared. She ended up lying down in the same spot and going to sleep! She stayed there while my Mom went out to do errands and till it was dark and my Dad came home from watching a football game. We have seen her before, watching the same hole. Mom says she thinks she must have had success there at least once, otherwise she would not come back so much.

  2. Oh sweety, that chipmunk is probably long gone out the other hole 10 feet behind you! Clever things, those chipmunks are.
