Sparrow Hawk gets the bird

Cat Bird of the Month ~ November 2014
Sparrow Hawk Feeding

Video: Ed @ Moggyblog

This daring bird had the cheek to nestle down on Norman's patch and proceed to tuck in to his elevenses. I dissuaded the said cat from going out to defend his turf on this occasion. Instead we watched from the safety of an open window.

The video is a bit gorey and not for the squeamish ... He's a lovely adult male bird though (looked him up on R.S.P.B website).

We are struck by the strength of his legs when he is pulling the prey apart and by the bright orange colouration on his chest.

  • This is a shame! What was his crime? ...escaping from a zoo and then just trying to survive as any creature would.
  • RIP Lilleth
