Mr. S and I have been keeping tabs on a hawk whose territory is a mile or so from our house. We tend to notice hawks, but this one caught our eye because he (!) is missing part of one leg. Mr. S saw it first – Mr. Hawk has the fleshy part of his right leg, but is missing the claw. We watch for him when we drive that way, and worry when we haven’t seen him for a while. A few days ago Mr. S saw him by the side of the road dining on some dead thing. He appeared to be able to use his stump for balance. We are glad that he seems to be thriving!
Who are your wild friends?
