dtjoyceDo not think that just because we live in one of the biggest cities in the world we never see nature in action. Just a few moments ago as I was putting Colin and Heath down for a nap, I went to close the curtains in their room and noticed a flurry of feathers falling toward the ground. As I looked closer across the alley I saw this hawk going to town on what looked like a pigeon, possibly caught in midair. I told Colin that he should come look. We went into the kitchen and opened the window to get a clearer view. I think the hawk may have known it was being watched because it hardly did anything as we were watching. But then I put Colin back in bed and watched quietly from another window, where I took this photo as I listened to it eat its meal. Snap, snap, snap, and more feathers and a claw swallowed whole — the hawk is still out there finishing it off.
