Last night at around dusk I was letting Corky out the back patio door. He went out and I happened to look next door and saw a big bird. I hurried up and told my husband to come look. By the time I turned around to look again the bird had already taken off. He flew really fast over our garage and through the trees.
I've never seen a bird like this. It was not the usual variety of birds we see around here. It was a pretty big bird. My husband thinks it might have been a falcon or a hawk. It all happened so fast and because it was starting to get dark I really couldn't tell the colors on the bird.
I'll have to keep my eyes open from now on before I let Corky out in case it ever comes back.
