The Hawk Feather

I often find hawk feathers on my property. This one was on my gravel driveway, but I left it alone because according to the 1918 Migratory Bird Treaty Act, it is illegal to own hawk feathers or to remove them from one’s property. However, by the next day it had disappeared anyway.

“Lean forward into your life…
catch the best bits and the finest wind.
Just tip your feathers in flight a wee bit
and see how dramatically that small lean
can change your life.” (Mary Anne Radmacher)

    This spring, the squirrels ate all but 12 of my strawberries. This August a nice young Harrier Hawk couple moved into an old raptor nest in the muscadine tree. They quickly ate all the squirrels. The hawk chicks are thriving on high protein meals!

    1. That’s a great story! I love hawks. I view them as good omens.

    I love the quote with this post — about leaning forward. How a slight lean can make a big difference. Thank you.


    1. Glad you like it. I need to keep it in mind more often.
