I can forget the most important item on a short grocery list before I even leave the house. I can forget the password I just entered into the computer or even the time when the game starts. But I won’t ever forget the look.
The odd thing is that I don’t recall the last time I was on the receiving end of one of them or who sent them my way.
I’m pretty sure I remember the gender of all the senders but it’s probably best if I don’t specify. I certainly do remember the eye-popping heat those women generated. But what has any of this got to do with wildlife?
This past week I stared into the eyes of a few hawks and got my own eyebrows raised. It seems they have mastered the look.
I know hawks can be pretty intense and I know it’s serious business because they are predators looking for a meal. Still it got a little more uncomfortable when the hawk focused on me. The look will do that.
After that experience, I am sure my grocery-list memory will improve. No use taking any chances.
