A Three Hawk Round of Golf

The following pictures were taken of three different hawks during one round of golf, yesterday in Bent Tree.  One swooped down into the rough near the creek, on the front nine, and caught what looked like a mouse. On the back nine, a hawk was sitting in a tree eating the remnants of something.  Another hawk tried to steal the meal from the one sitting in a tree, but failed and flew to another tree to sit and watch.

Tax Sale Results

15 lots within the Bent Tree community are marked as “SOLD” from last week’s tax sale.  Click here to link to the county’s report of the results.  It will be interesting to see what becomes of the lots after the redemption period has passed.  Three of the lots that sold are next to each other.  One of those lots is already a combined double lot.  Conceivably, they could all be combined into one lot that is over 2½ acres.

Bear coming out from behind a stump

There have been a lot of bear sightings over the last year, and many people in Bent Tree have taken some amazing bear pictures.  A few years ago, it seemed like I saw bears everywhere I went in Bent Tree.  Then I hit a long, dry spell.  Until last Monday, I hadn’t seen a bear since 2014.  On Monday, this bear appeared from behind an old stump.  I was able to grab my camera and snap a couple of pictures before the fast-moving bear went across the street and behind some trees.  The pictures aren’t great, but I’m happy.
