A Terrible Day for a Dove
O.K., so the photos kinda suck, but the capture was cool! A male Northern Harrior was lunching on what I think might be a Mourning Dove. The pink/red feet and feather coloring seems to point in that direction. I didn't see the kill, but passed the harrior on my way home. I turned around, because I've never seen a harrior so close to the road with kill, and I was interested in what he was actually eating. He didn't stay long. I never did get stable with the car moving/camera shooting, so I am lucky I have what I have. Click on the last photo for better detail of the kill and see what you think the bird might be.
