The Hawk Next Door

By its size and stubby tail, I know the hawk that accompanies me while I work outside in the cool of the morning is a youngster. Male or female, I don't know, but it has a persistent whistle, which I hear often, even from inside the house, and this morning, from a lower bare dead branch of the dogwood just above my head.

It's a little unnerving to weed with a hawk watching my every move. What does it want? dkm

it wants you to lead him/her to some little birds, or for you to unearth a small snake or chipmunk. You could be the lunch lady for this bird!

I would like to exchange links with your site
Is this possible?

Not unless you tell me why, and more about yourself, and what you mean by "exchanging links."
