The hawk retired to the house down the street (we call it the Screamer’s house, because all they do is scream at their kids) and a very brave mockingbird tried to get the hawk to leave, but all the hawk did was preen.

    Ohhh, great photo! I love it when little birds get after big birds (as long as nobody gets hurt).
    Screamer’s house – that’s what I used to call the house next door before the neighbors moved on. Mother and daughter would scream at each other. Thankfully now it’s very quiet.

    Perhaps the mother is just screaming to her children to “RUN FOR IT!!” because she thinks they are about to be carried off by a pterodactyl that is perched on their roof. [Okay, I know a pterodactyl is/was not a bird]

    Pterodactyls were the precursor to birds, so your idea is not so far-fetched. Well, it is, but I thought I would give you a boost of confidence.
    Oh, dear…I’m encouraging him!
