First of all, Thank You for all the Birthday wishes.
Second: do you remember last winter me going on and on about the hawk who had taken up residence on my back porch? This was a very young Cooper's Hawk who had been found abandoned by her parents and who was rescued by the Wildlife Center who released her to the wild in August 2013. In December she arrived in my back yard and was clearly struggling to find food and survive. I began giving her a mouse a day to help her along and she seemed to be doing better. Then in April, she vanished and I feared the worst(only about 1 in 10 hawks survive to become adults). But today she appeared again, alighting on a fence-post just outside my studio window. I can only assume that she stopped by to wish me a Happy Birthday!
