It’s been a while since I have shared any pics of these vicious little raptors. Going back to March for these pics.
The pair frequents a little open space in my suburb north of Denver, providing some nice captures every now and then. On this morning, the male caught itself a nice little mouse and was busily devouring it. That got the attention of the female who tried to steal it and while she was unsuccessful, she did stop to pose afterwards.
I know the pair has a nest in a tree cavity somewhere in the area but have thus far been unsuccessful in finding it.
