Prairie Falcon dines on another feathered creature

These raptors are extraordinary hunters, capable of snatching their preferred prey of smaller birds right out of the air. Larks, swallows and even doves can fall victim to the fast-moving, ferocious falcon.

One of these little birds became this particular falcon’s breakfast recently. I missed the actual kill but was able to capture some images of it as it quickly devoured its victim. Pretty fun stuff and a good example of predator and prey in nature.

Scroll down to view all the images from the encounter.
