tuesday trauma: tail of two fevvers

mom an' miss ginger went out shopping togefur, an' when they came home, this is what they found in our front yard :
a fevver called a hawk (of some sort, daddy finks a young redtail--does ennycat know fer sure? we lives in southwestern missouri) tacted an' kilt (!) anover fevver (a dove). the hawk fevver just stood there an' stood there while they took pictures, an' din't fly away until they started to walk out to it. an' then they realized that the hawk had been perched on the remains of the dove--he carried them up an' away wif him, an' this is all that was left behind!!we wanted to go out an' roll inna fevvers an' take 'em indoors for playin' but mean ol' mom sed we coudn't acause fevvers carry sickies called sit-a-co-sis, an' she din't want 'em inna house. pooey. obviously, the hawk wasn't scairt of no sickies!!

Oh noes! that Hawk sure did get that dove good! We had another bird attack a mourning dove in our yard a few months ago. The scene looked a lot like that.

We also wanted to roll around in the fevvers, but mom said no. no fun at all!

Aw, poor dove! We once saw a hawk chasing a dove...the dove flew in to a tree and got away!

That is one keen predator! I don't think there is a single part left, except for the feathers.

It looks like a young redtail to us, too.
Mum saw one the other day eating something it had caught...
Stay away from them, kitties! They are very fierce hunters who think kitties make a good meal! *GASP*

It's a red tail hawk. We have one dat lives real close to our house. It comes down in our yard to drink in da pond. It likes to hide in our forest and we can hear it screeching. If it gets really close den da squirrels hide in da trees and make scoldy noises
