early to bed and early to rise makes a man or woman miss out on the night... life
A bird I am tentatively identifying as a Northern harrier (hen harrier, for those of you across the puddle; aka marsh hawk) has moved into the neighborhood. I see her every couple of days--twice today--and about half the time the crows are giving her a terrible time.
It makes me wonder if the smaller gray bird we've been seeing and thinking might be a peregrine is the male.
By the way, if you want to know what a crawling discorporate amorphous fantasyland evil looks like? It's the shadows of a crow and a harrier fighting, twisting across the trees.
