Carnage in the Backyard

Carnage in the Backyard


Our Big Backyard [Brendan Greeley]

We looked out over our back deck this morning, and saw this falcoln hawk perched on the railing, clutching a big sewer rat in her talons. It was a strange totally awesome reminder of what a urban/rural mash-up our Boston is. She sat there, watching us through the windows and shredding that rat like string cheese as we made our afternoon calls.

We did a birding show a while back. Can anyone identify our specimen?
