Life and Death in the winter snow.

I noticed feathers falling past my front window this afternoon and looked outside to find this Sharp-Shinned Hawk eating a small bird in the Ponderosa Pine tree in the front yard. The temperature outside was 13 degrees Fahrenheit. A small bird needs to consume a lot of calories to survive in these temperatures.


  1. Nice action shots of the young Accipiter Batimaeus. It's nice to see nature in action.

  2. Life in the raw - awesome photos!
