    We also get the occasional raptor, usually some sort of hawk like the Harris hawk, in the neighborhood. They are welcomed because they like to to feed on the pigeons.

    Oh, yeah, and then there was the time my wife looked out the front window and saw a couple of people staring at the roof of our house. She went out and saw one of these sitting on the edge of the roof looking down into her goldfish pond.



    A great blue heron. (Her goldfish are the large kind - some of them seven or eight inches long, and apparently they looked like a great meal to this particular bird.) A friend gave the wife a roll of kevlar netting, which we stretched over the pond.
    Looks a little bit like a morning dove. Yeah those herons can do a number. My old neighbor had the old inside of a washing machine that he kept minnows in the lake in. the holes allow water to flow but keeps the bait in. One morning around 6:00 AM I looked out the window and saw a heron just going to town on those literal fish in a barrel. The next time I saw the guy I told him what had happened and asked him if the bird left him any. He said yeah, 1 out of 12!

    Yes! I totally get it! I don't have that gift but others do. It's like they're in sync, or something.
    I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men.

    There is more that we do not understand than there is that we do understand. i personally wouldn't have it any other way.
