The finches in my aviary are very good about sounding the "danger alert". Today they let me know the Cooper's Hawk was back. He was a stalking hawk, sitting on a tree branch right up above them.
I had a juvenile Cooper's hawk visit my fountain in January. I wonder if it's the same one.
Before fear of death struck them, life was good for the finches today. I had just fed them some egg meal. It's egg mixed with ground-up eggshell.
Why are all these birds cannibals??
