Well THEY'RE ALL WRONG!
Doves are not native to Albuquerque but some how they got here and they're taking over the place. We've got freaking doves everywhere. They leave piles of shit on our yard. They scare other birds away. They are freaking loud and you have shut your windows in the morning so you aren't woken up by the racket as soon as the sun starts to come up. And they're vision isn't all that great and they are constantly flying into our big windows upstairs. Scares the shit out of you. (Isn't so good on them either.)
I wanted Wife to take shooting lessons and just start taking them out but she wasn't game for it (Ha, Ha, Ha get it 'game' for it. They're allegedly good eating.)
However I was getting ready to come down from the tower and was approaching the big window by our stairs when I saw this large set of wings as a bird was getting ready to land on the edge of our roof. I glanced at it as said to myself, "That doesn't look like a dove."
No it is THE SAVIOR!
Hawks eat other birds I'm pretty sure. I checked to see if said hawk had a Facebook page so I could put out a friend request. I've done internet searches to determine the best way to communicate to your hawk that he or she is welcome in the neighborhood. I want that hawk on my house all summer!
