I was driving home from work yesterday when something on the grass verge ahead caught my eye. After quickly checking there were no cars behind me, I pulled over. This is what I had attracted my attention.
A Red-shouldered Hawk.
I watched as the hawk tore and ate pieces of flesh from what looked like a small bird.
Certainly not one of the most beautiful aspects of nature. But I guess a hawk's gotta do what a hawk's gotta do.
