ballin’ with birds of prey
i play basketball every day. i know, i know. hard to picture.
regardless… it happens. every day.
it can get pretty mundane i will admit. but today was vastly different.
i walked up to the court, head down. did my stretches. heard a loud screech.
one that i don’t usually hear in the middle of dallas.
i looked up, and this is what i saw. remarkable! a red-tailed hawk about 15 yards from me.
what a phenomenal bird. he allowed me to get within 10 feet of him too!
he caught a squirrel, so i think he was concerned with defending his meal.
but he sat there and watched me as i played basketball for a half an hour.
what an unusual treat today…
