Chicken hawks!

Hawks are predators and will eat small animals and some even a deer!

Now don't quote me on this can leave a comment if you know the correct name but I believe it is the cooper hawk? that it was illegal to have them around and people used to go outside and shoot them because they kept stealing and eatting chickens!

Hollywood finches

I was hoping to shoot a picture up of these for you - but the red finches that you see outside they are also called Hollywood finches. I was reading about them and found out that a hollywood finch used to be a caged pet bird and it became illegal to have them so pet stores set them free in fear of being prosecuted.
