I was lucky to see this beautiful creature sitting on top of a pallet very close to my home. People in the neighborhood are nervous that raptors like this one will take their small dogs. I cannot say if they would or wouldn’t, but I’ve never observed a hawk taking or attacking a small dog. Rabbits, squirrels, birds, yes.

This particular hawk seemed agitated and hungry, hearing birds in a bush just a few feet away and unable to get them, he left without a meal. However, several days later we observed rabbit hair in the adjoining yard.
