Mona vs. Blogger...

Look who came calling... Mr. Cooper's Hawk. My dad happened to notice that there were NO BIRDS at any of the feeders. He looked around and discovered this guy.. just on the other side of my safe play fenced area.
He had caught and was eating one of my mom's Blue Jays.
Dad was able to get a few pics before he flew away... with what was left of his Catch of the Day.
I also want to tell you that Last night in almost the exact same spot... we saw Charcoal and Charcoal having an evening snack. They have been leaving me lots of ... Yard Snacks.
Now... about Mona. She and her mom are having a terrible time with Blogger. I think maybe the Grinch got into it. They could leave comments fur a few days butt now they can't even do that. If you have any Ideas fur them... could you please pass them on to Mona and her mom? We are missing them. I'm thinkin you could even leave some helpful comments on the Kissa Bulls (SHELBY) blog and they can call Mona's mom.
I know what they are going through... blogger was giving me fits yesterday. I could NOT get some blogs to open up... ever. And some took 3 or 4 tries. BAH.

Sorry Frankie, left the comment on the wrong blog!!!

We thinks blogger may be adding new stuff which is causing problems for some bloggers. We had trouble visiting some blogs Monday. Everything seems to be OK for us now.

That is one scary bird. We are afraid of Hawks. Tell the Charcoals to watch out for him.

Mack said...

We wish we could help Mona,,,but my mom is sorta...deficient... in the tech department. We hope she gets it fixed soon though!
And is that critter part CAT or something? Yikes!

Sometimes the blogger is just goofy and you have to refrain for a while so they can reboot or whatever it is they do.

Oh dat poor blue jay :o( I hopes dat old hawk gets indigestion. You watch out for dat big bird Frankie. You's would really give him da indigestion. (HeHeHe) Just kiddin'.

Maybe blogger wants to takes a vacation. It had to work hard in 2010. Just thinkin'


tula said...

Those #$#@! hawks spoil the funballs. but they are cool to see! except maybe not while eating another birdie.
just sayin.

Sometimes blogger is the problem and not the hooman. you can look at the discussion forum to see if anyone else is having the some problemo.


Sam said...

That's a big bird. Thanks for the pictures; we have birds like that who fly around over our woods but we've never seen one up close, except for TV!

Sorry your friend is having Blogger trouble. Don't we all?

Ruby and Penny said...

Morning Frankie
We hope Mr Hawk has enough sense to stay away from you and The Charcoals.
We never did receive those Charcoal snacks you were going to dry for us. Mystery.
No probs with blogger here. (touch wood)
Love ya

Jazzi said...

That Mr Hawk sure looks skeery!! You and the Charcoals watch out ok? DOnt know much bout the blogger, my mom isnt good in that area and ours is working fine, paws crossed!! Have a good day Frankie.

Anonymous said...

Wow...that's a big bird! We had something like that in our back yard the other day and it looked like he was eating a...gulp!...bunny! So be sure and tell the Charcoals to stay far, far away from Mr. Cooper.

I just feel so bad for Mona and her mommy cuz of stoopid Blogger. Has she contacted the peoples in charge of Blogger to let them know of the troubles she's having?

Yes Frankie, blogger is a mess and everyone seems to get their turn!!! A while back I couldn't leave a comment on any ones blog it went on for weeks. Now and I cross my fingers, things are working for me!!
Blogger just being blogger!!
Thank you sweetie for the nice things you said about my G-daughter, yes I love her and am very proud of her.
xxoo, Bambi & fern

Watch out fur that Hawk...he might come back fur you, Frankie!

Tell Charcoal and Charcoal to lay low when that hawk is around. We love watching them, but they aren't friends of small animals!

Sometimes we've found that if we save our blog posts and then go back to edit them, we can do more. We've also noticed that we need to sign back in more often. We're working on moving to Wordpress. BOL!

We know there is a necessary hierarchy in the food chain, but we feel badly for the bluejay. Hope that hawk doesn't try to snatch the Charcoals.

We have no idea how to help Mona. We suggested she try creating a new blog and see if she could then import the old stuff, but we really aren't too savvy on all that stuff.

I love the wildlife but there are some things that just make me sad. But I have to keep in mind that is what God intended....still sad.... I get so confused with the blogger somedays that I would of no help to anyone....sorry....

scotsmad said...

Hope that hawk doesn't eat rabbit!

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

BRUTUS said...

Wow - that is some bird of prey! You might want to tell the Charcoals to look out, squirrel could end up on the menu if Mr. Cooper gets hungry enough!

Hey Frankie!
Wow, what great pix of that hawk. I don't like it when blue jays land on my deck, and the hawks in my territory stay a respectful I gotta say "Way to Go Coop!" Our eagles go anywhere they want and I do worry a little that they could grab up a doggie my size!
Happy 2011!
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Mom missed a great photo opp with our Khooper The Hawk -

Mom was SOOOOOOO fixated on replying to Auntie Di's email that she khompletely missed him/her sitting in the bush right next to us until he/she flew to a nearby tree -

As fur Mona and the Mommy, it is surely puzzling to us -


Tucker said...

Mr. Pip said...

Be careful of those hawks, Frankie. I hear they like small dogs, too. When I visit Cousin Wrigley up in northern Wisconsin, I always have to be on a leash because of the hawks and eagles. I tell everyone I could easily take down an eagle (being a superhero and all), but no one seems to believe me.

Your pal Pip

Lorenza said...

Poor birdie!
I hope Mona will be able to blog soon!
Blogger acts weird from time to time!
Kisses and hugs

Three Dogs Long said...

Eeek!!! That is one scarey looking hawk!! Gives us the shivers!
Poor Mona...we're hoping the bloggie woes will be over soon!

(((hugs)) and Happy New Year!
your friends, Oskar, Schatzi & Xena

sprinkles said...

Be sure to stay away from that hawk, Frankie - I'd hate for him to pick you up and carry you away! The Charcoal's would be wise to stay away too!

Blogger can be soooooo annoying! I have those problems sometimes too but figured it was just my computer not wanting to load pictures/pages. Good to know I'm not the only one experiencing issues.

My biggest gripe is when I'm trying to add pictures to a post I'm preparing. I can add one or two but if I add more, it makes me close out of the post altogether and reopen it. The browser button doesn't work.

Sagira said...

Oh poor Mr. Blue Jay. What a neat shot that you got though.

Bet you like your bunny snacks. :)

Sorry to hear about Mona's blog. :(
