I looked out the craft room window a few days ago and could not believe my eyes. This is either a sharp-shinned or a Cooper's hawk sitting on top of my bluebird house. My first thought was where was the mother bluebird? Was she sitting inside the box? Had she taken off in fright? Luckily she was back on the nest later that day and I saw both bluebirds this morning. I have not seen the hawk again. We often have a red-tailed hawk in the tree across the street, but rarely see these hawks. I was also privileged to see a pileated woodpecker cross the road in front of my car while on the way to the grocery store this morning.
