A juvenile red tail hawk tookA juvenile red tail hawk took up residence in our Cape Cod backyard in June and for weeks could be found on the lower branches of trees, sitting on our fence, even on our bird houses and feeders. He seemed indifferent to the constant warning calls of our back yard woodpeckers and blackbirds, who tried to shoo him away, even dive bombing him on his perch or when he swooped low across the yard. He was quite impressive but only once did we see him kill a chipmunk and eat it. He seems to have moved on now, but made a lasting impression while he was here.
