I hadn't been planning any bird posts but this was too good to pass up. We saw this handsome fellow on the neighbors fence yesterday morning. He was checking out the possible menu items. He took off hunting in our yard and the open space beyond. I don't think he was successful.
A few hours later he was back on the fence, this time with his supper. The photo below is not for the squeamish but I was thrilled to get such photos through my window.
I suspect it was a quail. The ongoing struggle for survival.
