What’s for breakfast?

Back In the Day®, when the cops decided to grab some shuteye during a shift, they called it “cooping.” But this Cooper’s hawk isn’t napping on the job. He’s up early and inspecting the menu from our backyard maple.

I saw this when I stepped out to shoot the sunrise this morning. Our bird feeders have become a bird feeder.

    Years ago we had a similar thing happen when the neighbor installed a bird bath that was nominated as a local cat feeding station after it attracted the attention of the surrounding felines

      Reminds me of the Tim Allen gag from “Men are Pigs,” where he’s talking about building a bird feeder only to remember that he doesn’t like birds all that much. So he builds it a couple inches off the ground and presto: combo bird/cat feeder.
