A visitor in the garden.

A visitor in the garden.

I said I would back track over the year and a half or almost 2 since Molly died. Hard to remember where to start. So here goes with something different to Snake, Monitor Lizards or Tarantula visitors to our garden.

I always seem to be cooking when something happens. I remember it was a Sunday night but I ‘m not sure what month. OH gives a shout  “hurry and come and see this”

There on the porch was this little fellow

A young bird of pray. I think he’s a hawk. He had someone flown into the patio doors and knocked himself out. I was so excited at getting this close to a bird of pray. Here are some more photos of the little fella.

DSCN0295You can see he has opened his eyes now. He sat for what seemed like a very long time. He seemed quite happy for me to hold him and stroke his back. He even let me open his wings and check for damage.

DSCN0296He is fully awake now, although he must have been so dazed to sit so long.

DSCN0297This one is just before flight. I kept putting my hand into the air but he didn’t seem in any hurry to fly off.

DSCN0298 DSCN0299After what seemed like an age. He flew up onto the gate. He sat watching me for some time. I do believe in an afterlife and  I wondered who it was that had come to visit me that day.

We have had some nasty encounters in the time we have lived in Thailand but this has to be one of the best. I shall never forget my hawk that came to visit. Never saw him again either.
