Random thoughts about roadside art, National Parks, historic preservation, philosophy of technology, and whatever else happens to cross my mind.

I'd been noticing that the stray cat and squirrel populations around the apartment complex seemed to be dropping. I wonder if this guy perched on the light pole next to our apartment building is the reason why? I know broad-winged hawks are one of the smaller raptors, but they're not much smaller than red-tailed hawks, and we used to watch red-tails hunt rabbits in the vacant lot next to the NPS regional office in Omaha. If a red-tail can carry off an adult cottontail rabbit, I don't think a broad-wing would have much of a problem with a kitten.
