Recently I've had a couple of good views of raptors having lunch in the trees above Azalea Pond. Thursday, it was an American Kestrel eating a Fox Sparrow snatched right from under the feeders at Evodia.
The day before, I watched a Cooper's Hawk chow down on a sparrow (probably a House Sparrow). Here it is spitting out some feathers:
Nature, red in beak and talon. I'm fonder of the little birds than I am of the hawks, but we all have to make a living.
