The hawks are back this morning. They have no more rain to contend with, it having stopped about an hour ago. The sky remains overcast, and provides a suitable atmosphere for the birds' cries. I have no idea why the hawks find this particular neighborhood so attractive. There are dense woodlands and open fields farther east that I would expect them to find more appealing. I've grown to enjoy their visits, though. I like the half-scary, half-mournful calls these airborne killing machines make. They are like avian kitties! But they probably wouldn't take to being petted.
I just noticed that the recently-added auto-save feature on the LJ web update page has vanished again. I wonder what happened? Nothing about it in news. Hmph.
