Last week, Mimi yelled for me to come and see what was wrong with this big bird she could see from her bedroom window. She said it could not fly. If you are not squeamish you will see he is mantling his dinner.
After I noted what kind of bird it was, I grabbed my camera and went to my bedroom to get a better angle. This is how far away he was and the birds were diving at him.

This photo and the next two are not as clear but remember I was shooting through our blinds and trying not to be noticed. He did give me a leave me alone look a few times.

This last shot, he was moving his head so much trying to ward off the dive bombing birds and in an instant he took his meal and headed off to parts unknown.
The kitty justice was to get to see my favorite big bird (Red tail Hawk) so close.

Was it a rabbit or a squirrel he caught? It is a nice set of photos. I enjoyed them. Never saw a red-tailed hawk up here but am sure they are around.

It was a squirrel. The photos are not as good as if you took them but I thought they made a nice series of events. Peace

Thanks and Peace
