The Circle of Life in the BackyardPosted: January 4, 2016
I had made this post a few months back and never published it. I walked out into the yard and saw the same scene in almost the same spot, so I thought it would be relevant to put the post up now.
I had just walked back into the house when I heard a loud ruckus in the yard. I looked in time to see a hawk swooping up from the yard with prey in its claws. A flock of Bluejays were screaming in pursuit.
After examining the feathers that were left behind, I believe the hawk caught a dove like the one in the photo. These doves tend to sit around in the yard. A hawk attack is certainly a hard thing to witness, but it has to eat too.
