29. Perhaps the hawk likes the rodents and birds you scare up for him/her.

You're working for him/her if that's the case. The mowing of the grass is incidental.

13. Probably calculating the necessary energy required

to achieve adequate lift, versus not having to hunt again for a couple of months.

23. It's great to have an appreciation for the beauty of nature.

And your hawk is a perfect example of all that's right in this world.

28. So that's the name for the pair of birds ...

 

that cycle above and lite in the Mesquite in my backyard?

I just call them Mr. and Mrs. Scruffy Bird.

They some majestic things but are sorely lacking in table manners ... they leave dove and quail feathers all over my yard.
