      Gg, indeed very cuddly - even though I first had to think of dandruff, which wouldn't be so cuddly after all ;)

      Pretty sure this is what I saw from my kitchen window today. I see hawks a lot but never saw one fluffed up like this. It looked like a huge baby chick. When it flew off I knew then it was an adult. It's a great pic, Thanks!
