I wasn’t sure if this was a Napoleon complex or if he was injured, but it did seem he protected that one foot for a long time. Of course, he could just be showing off. I could stand on one foot on top of a sliver of fence while looking for prey if I wanted to. I just don’t want to.
He soon put it down, but any time he turned, he seemed to protect it. Maybe a sparrow fought back!
He stayed a long time on the fence as I got closer and closer. But I must say, I am still hugging my patio pillar pretty closely since my last near miss with Cooper’s claws.
I don’t much like the thought of hawks eating my smaller birds, but they all have to live. And I really do like my hawks. Awesome creatures!
