My Friday afternoon drive was a bit lacking in quantity but I did manage to see something I had never seen in person before – A Red Tailed Hawk eating a garter #snake. The hawk was a good ways away so these are pretty cropped and it flew off once it realized I was there. Certainly I know it isn’t unusual for raptors to snag a snake but I am happy to have been able to witness it in person. Taken in Adams County, Colorado.
