Day 93 - 3Apr2010 - Prairie Breakfast

Hope you're not squeamish. This is a Merlin Falcon (id'd courtesy of my Uncle Joe - thanks!) dining on her breakfast of an unfortunate gull. Earlier, there were two crows trying to horn in on the meal, but the Merlin was having none of that. She was pretty patient with them, but eventually harassed them away. There's a couple of photos of that encounter, not quite as sharp as I'd like, in the Birds category.
