Bird is the word

While catching up on online local news, I discovered pictures of a pair of red-tailed hawks nesting very close to where I work at the LNFU. Then I did a bit more research and found out some fellow nerdy-nature watchers had set up a hawk-cam. (I highly, highly recommend reading all the way to the end of the hawk-cam article.)

Earlier today I caught a glimpse of momma hawk setting on her eggs, and occasionally redecorating by moving branches around with her beak. I had an immediate feeling of lurv for her, mainly because she reminds me of my kitty, who has great big green eyes and likes to wiggle her bum around while she's settling in to her own "nest" - a wicker basket with soft bedding inside.
