'Hawk Warning' for the East coast [pet owners]

The warning is self explaining. Many vets,pet rescue centers,park rangers,pet-oriented facebookers and at least one police department are circulating this alert.

I remember when I first moved

I remember when I first moved to the "country" years ago and was watching a hawk circling overhead. My neighbor, from Dorchester, Mass, ran outside to grab her baby that was playing in the yard. At the time that seemed to me to be a little overprotective, but, heck, why not. Who would want their baby taken, or even ravanged, by a hawk?

Years ago a large red-tailed hawk grabbed my 14 lb. Dachshund, but she fought so wildly it dropped her. Quite a scare for her and for me.

My small dog was laying on

My small dog was laying on the deck this week and there were 6 hawks circling the deck. I told the dog to come inside and they immediately left.

I've noticed the increase in birds of prey this spring. It is a welcome sight.

The crows don't like it though and that makes it doubly nice.
