Red-Shouldered Hawk

While slowly diving on a rural road I noticed a red-shouldered hawk swooping down on it's next meal...



When the hawk landed I wasn't sure if it caught something or not...



It soon became apparent that it had been successful...





With a toss of the head the vole was devoured...




Looking closely, one can see the tip of a tail protruding from the hawks's mouth...


Thanks for visiting, be well and come back soon.
