John and I saw a new (to us) bird in our back yard this morning. We believe it is a Louisiana Waterthrush. (In the first picture, the bird is just about in the center of the photograph. He's difficult to see.) I was able to get a few pictures. I also snapped a few pictures of an Eastern Bluebird and a Mourning Dove.

In hawk news, we were outside from about 5 to 6 and saw the Cooper's Hawk try to pick off a 3 song birds. He's watching the feeders from somewhere in wait of a carefree songbird. Ahhh . . . . . the circle of life. Hobie would get really excited each time the hawk would come in the yard. He would bark and chase after the it until it was out of his site. The song birds have not been at our feeders as much lately, and when they are there, they look a little nervous. The good news is that our seed is lasting a little longer than it usually does.
