Predation at Reeds Brook Trails
Because of its dense brush, the Reeds Brook trails make for great bird watching. My older son and I set out to do just that last night. While watching two song birds interacting on the ground 10 feet in front of us, we were surprised by a hawk which swooped down, grabbed one of the birds and carried it off to a nearby tree.
|Seconds before, the bird under the hawk's right claw was flapping around on the ground, 10 feet in front of us.|
