Much to his horror, Typhoon discovered he had a rabbit hunting competitor who was boldly invading the Little Prince’s territory.
We had a steady rainfall yesterday, nearly 4 inches (10 cm) before the day was over. Our feathered visitor had claimed a perch on the fence, spread her wings, and attempted to dry off some. She also discovered that this was a great view to monitor the movement of rabbits, voles, and other delicious creatures. Unfortunately, one of our own was not happy about the competition.
Typhoon’s rule is that creatures outside the fence are fair game to our many predators (bobcat, coyote, fox, and, yes, the hawks, owls, and eagles that soar overhead), but he is sure that inside the fence is his own hunting ground. You will also notice that he is safely standing on the porch and not out in the yard having this conversation.
