I recently posted a picture of the hawk roosting in our backyard.
It’s been back again in our yard, this time dangling a dead squirrel. I’m so thankful it wasn’t a dead miniature pinscher. Although we have plenty of squirrels, I’m saddened that the squirrels that day were blind to the danger.
I don’t have any pictures of the hawk and its prey, but here is a sequence of other photos from that day. I did not do a slide show so you can look at them more closely. The first photo shows the back and tail feathers in good light, the next the head and beak, and finally the underside as it flew away.
