This morning we saw some pretty disgruntled looking deer walking across the yard. Well wading was more like it. Poor guys. There’s a lot of snow out there. And not much to eat. So you need to get what you can.

well what the heck is going on here?

Right around where poor bubbles lost her tail, I saw this. Whatever it was it wasn’t going anywhere. It just kept on eating. I can’t tell what kind of bird was caught, but today, this poor little hawk–a juvenile–is having a good chowdown.

UPDATE: yep it was a robin. poor little guy. A couple of feathers is all that’s left. Mom confirmed that they are pretty easy pickings. She surmised that they must be poor fliers with bad eyesight or something.
