I think some dogs must just have this sense stronger than others. Our pup
Sawyer alerted to a hawk yesterday. Didn't bark but it had his attention
and he followed it and climbed up to the top of a dirt pile to keep an eye
on it until it flew out of sight. Our other dogs don't seem to have as much
of an awareness of the BOP. Holly doesn't like sparrows and will snatch
them out of the air if she can.

I think you are right. This was apparently passed down by Sadie's mama.
Sadie is also extremely tuned into me. If I so much as point at something she
goes on full alert. She barks a lot though. She won't stop barking or running
until it is totally out of sight.
