Nature, red in beak and talon
Yesterday I was on my way to the hobby shop to get some paint for my next modelling project (Spitfire MK Vb) and came upon a group of people clustered about on the sidewalk, staring up at the side of a building.
I joined them and saw to my astonishment that there was a nice healthy red-tailed hawk sitting happily atop a pigeon nest (presumably the pigeons weren’t really very happy) having an impromptu lunch.
(Aside: do red-tailed hawks ever have planned, i.e., not impromptu, lunches? Note to self: Google this.)
Anyway, I managed to get some video of her as she ate, and here it is, for your delectation.
PS. Stick around for the credits. 🙂
