Seems like the hawks now recognize the sound of my rifle going off as being a dinner bell for them. Used to be that the tree rats would just lay where they fell until night time, when something nocturnal would clean it up. But now, well, it seems like the carcass doesn't lay out there long at all before it vanishes. I was curious if it was the hawks, so I set up the trail camera to monitor the latest varmint dispatch. Sure enough, my hawk buddy showed up and took the offering.

That is great. I wish I could dispatch some of our tree rats. We have at least 2 power outages a year in our neighborhood thanks to squirrels.
 
Connie told me that she saw the hawk sitting up in one of the trees this morning scanning the ground looking for another donation. Had to let him down, as I didn't see any opportunities to give him a free meal.
 
Well, I was able to make another donation to the hawk's diet this morning. Which was accepted.

Since the tree rat was trying to get into the bird feeders, this seems fair.

:hehe:
