Today as I was talking to my husband on the phone, I heard a weird squawking. I ran outside to see lots of flapping and more bird screaming. And as I stood on the steps, a huge bird flew out of the trees and bushes, at first I thought Redtail as it was so large and I saw red feathers. And then they parted, and I realized what I had witnessed. The Coop was actually holding on to the Flickers back and both birds where flying. The Coop let go of the Flicker, and the Flicker made a sharp left turn back into the bushes. The Coop flew right past my head and then turned left into the woods. I watched the Coop fly around in the trees hunting the Flicker. I lost site of the Coop after about one minute and never did see the Flicker.
On a lighter note. I got to see the two young Peregrines on the Tacoma bridge July 3rd, as we motored up the Thea Foss waterway they sat looking down at all the traffic. I was worried as I hadn't heard or seen them for the few days leading up to the Tall Ships in Tacoma event. I read in the paper that they are leaving the bridge up and giving the young 2 more weeks to fledge.

If you were arrested for being kind, would there be enough evidence to convict you?
