I was watching a robin out of the corner of my eye.
I thought he was eying a worm.
He ducked into the grass.
I can't remember seing a robin sort of squat into the grass as if nesting.
And then there was a gray flash over on the other side of the yard.
A red shouldered hawk was flying low.
The robin saw him before I did.

I'd duck too if I felt like I might be brunch.

This afternoon the hawk was back hiding in the foliage of a magnolia tree.
Maybe he thinks I put grass seed out to lure his meals.



get er done.
