A hawk was seen in the field today by our friend and colleague Bernie Goetz, as he was making the rounds ministering to injured squirrels (we like to call him Saint Bernard).
Just as the squirrels have finally been getting some relief from the cold weather, the hawks are showing up. Does it ever end? The good thing about the cold is it keeps the birds of prey away. But now they're back... and they're hungry. The squirrels that are crippled from frostbite are especially fair game, although of course there is nothing fair about it at all.
