Hawk vs. Cardinal

You just never know what things can happen in just one morning. This is a Sharp Shinned Hawk eating a Northern Cardinal, my dad spotted this bird in the ground this morning. I grabbed my camera and took a few shots. Thankfully he flew away with it before he started eating it, he was plucking the feathers off of it while he was on the ground. This is a picture of him protecting his prize from other hawks. Hawks put their wings down and over their prey so that no one will get it from him. I will put the other pictures in the photo section of this blog later on. ~Whitney
