This little fella has taken up residence in the folds under my gazebo.
He's been hangin around for a while. I know he's there. Yet he still manages to scare the BJeezus outta me when I go out to " Check the Dew "on the lillies in the evenings.😧

Looking at those tail feathers, it might be a hawk. And they like mice.

It's looking something weird.

bless his little heart he found a nice comfy spot. Yes, looks like a bird of prey, keep varmints to a minimum.

It could be an American Kestrel. Maybe build him a house.

I've built bird houses, bat houses and an outhouse. Fortunately, at least 1 out of the 3 are used. 💩 Since we live in the woods, I guess the birds and bats are more DIYers.
The birds won't move into my bird house. No bats in the bat house. I have an enclosed construction trailer. I left the doors open once. Within' a half a day, the birds had no problem building a nest, on a shelf, next to the microwave.
Mother Nature. Gotta Love It!

I did build a bird house, close to my cabin, birds were hauling in twigs and next thing I know, a squirrel takes over, birds gone and in spring, 3 little baby nuggets (heads) were peeking out the window of that bird house.
