& European Starling (four photos)
Ahoy! What is this with the long beautiful tail standing
on my snow-covered lawn?
A female Sharp-shinned Hawk! The beginning of the long task of
removing the feathers from her prey.
Getting sleepy from a good meal? Not done yet.
Over the course of about two hours I took a gazillion photos
through the sliding glass door at my home. When I first
spotted this large female I could only see the back side and she was so
large, with such a long tail, I thought she was
a game bird. I cleaned up the photos because she really made a
of this poor European Starling. She ate
everything she could and left all the feathers and inedible bird
parts for me to clean up. © Carol Davis, 2-21-2004
