One for #TBT going to December 9, 2015. I happened across this pretty lady just as she landed on a utility wire with her mouse meal. Unfortunately she opted to dine in private but it was fun seeing the whole predator / prey thing.
These birds are the smallest falcon in North America averaging about 8 inches long. Don’t let their size fool you though. They are as much of an effective predator and just as vicious as any raptor.
