A falcon IN OUR YARD!

This was so cool! We saw a falcon in our yard today... just sitting on the fence. When they were younger, I would be worried for the chickens, but they are nearly as big as the falcon is now. He didn't look at them twice. I thought it was a hawk, but when we looked it up, it was this:

We didn't get a picture of the one in the yard. When I opened the door to get a picture, it flew away, but the picture above was the coloring it had... I love raptors. The kids are developing my passion for them as well. They are lovely creatures.
