Nature Red in Beak and Talon

If you commit to providing a balanced environment for all species then you have to accept the natural process of species living off other species. Sometimes it is not pretty, often it is hard to watch but what it does mean is that you have a healthy ecosystem around you. Predators are rare and prey profuse and the struggle for survival is a constant. On this morning the Sharp-shinned Hawk won the struggle and the Mourning Dove did not.

You're right, the hawk does have to eat, great capture! By the way the box turtle on my blog is a pet. :)

Thanks Diane. I have a box turtle too, he's called Barnaby :)
