The Follow

In the early afternoon, with no return of the Sharp-shin, Tom twice hears White Tailed Antelope Squirrels sounding the alarm to the east of Base Camp. Thru binoculars Tom can see the Sharp-shinned in the distance. Tom closes the gap on the Sharp-shinned and for the rest of the day goes where it goes. Having chased the Sharp-shinned for the entire day Tom sits down at his desk, plugs the expired camera battery into the wall, and senses the Sharp-shinned knows its not welcome. Suddenly out the office window the Sharp-shinned swoops in on the feeding songbirds pinning them in the brush. Tom rushes out the door and the Sharp-shinned retreats to the North. Tom watches it for at least a mile before he loses sight of it.
