I make no apologies for the story's anthropomorphic slant. Unlike my "The Deer Story", where the first person narrative purposefully conveys an understanding of an intelligent and social animal, here it is merely a convenience. Hawks are far less a social animal than deer, and are seemingly much less intelligent. I do not make the bold claims about hawks that I have made about deer.
