Mammal Monday

Empty calories…
A couple people saw the Groundhog who lives here being hassled by a Red-tailed Hawk.
Expecting to see some youngsters soon.

Uh-oh. Trouble. This Red-tailed Hawk cached the remains (Gray Squirrel, I think) in this Atlas cedar. I saw the bird fly in empty-taloned, clamber up a limb, and only then start in on the retrieved leftovers.

Rodent remains in owl pellet. With a bonus bird bill down there to the right.

Backyard and Beyond is now accepting donations! If costs several hundred dollars a year to maintain this site, so I’ve put up a donations and tip “jar” feature for anyone who would like to help defray the tab. Thank you for your consideration and attention!
