Yesterday afternoon

I've mentioned before that a red tail hawk has moved into the neighborhood.  Yesterday afternoon he was sitting on the roof of the house across the street.  He had a small bird in his mouth. It looked like a dove, which are abundant in this area.  I named him Henry. [Warner Bros cartoons, Henry the Hawk]

Well Henry is looking right at me. Yeah, I've got a dove and I'm a bad ass hawk. And he proceeded to tear it open and eat it as I watched.  I've seen birds of prey hunt, but I've never seen one devour its kill so close before.  It did not take very long and Henry was done.  And he flew away.
