We had a hawk on the fence right outside the window in the backyard a few days ago. Something that was both good and bad. On the good side it's not often you get to see a bird like that so close in the purgatory we call the suburbs. On the bad side it was on the fence right next to the feeders we put out for the regular yard birds which is no doubt what attracted it. I didn't actually see it get one but pretty sure it had one cornered in the woodpile near there and probably did get it. I know that the hawk has to eat but putting the feeders out there was not to provide a free lunch for anything but the sparrows and cardinals.

The other predator was from watching the "Barbarian" series on History channel. Just started out to draw the Celtic helmet but what the heck, helmet has to be on top of something.
