I'm finally getting around to posting another weekly critter...but I have an excuse albeit a stupid one (on my part). My first rule if you're in the kitchen cooking is to wear shoes. Well I wasn't. Yup, guess where this is going. The timer went off for the chicken roasting in the oven and since I was there I opened the door and grabbed the broiler pan. As I turned to place the pan on the stove I somehow sloshed out some grease which landed on my left foot causing 2nd and 3rd degree burns. Ouch. Well it's been ten days and I'm finally starting to grow some skin back.
I have two photos for you today, The first is a bluejay which is a bird we don't see around here very often. The second photo-story is of a red tailed hawk and a crow. The crows had been harassing the hawk and he finally had enough, grabbed one and landed. You can see part of the crow's feathers on the right near the head. The hawk was daring the other crows to come near. He finally had enough, dropped the crow and took off. I thought the crow was a goner but as soon as the hawk release him he took off after the hawk again.
