The Circle of Life

This post is a tad grizzly ... just sayin'

I went outside to the back deck this afternoon to set a rug out to dry in the sun. On the grass below the deck, I noticed a dead bird. I was sure it was dead because ... gulp ... no head. So I went back into the house to find something to use to clean it up. But before I could, I heard some very loud bird sounds.

A falcon(?) was perched on top of the dead bird! I grabbed my camera, quickly changed some settings, and snapped a couple photos.

I had to raise the blinds, and I think that action caused the bird to startle. Before I knew it, the live bird picked up the dead bird and flew off! Yike!

At least I don't have to figure out how to pick up the dead bird.
