Killer

As I was recovering of the flu on the couch I suddenly heard  a lot of noise in the backyard. Birds were screaming and I saw something big flying. There was one bird sitting on the ground I had never seen before. I called my hubby to get his camera with a big telephoto lens and he made these photos of a sparrow hawk.

All the birds had gone, only he was on the ground and he was pulling something he had under his foot. I saw feathers flying around and he was killing a little birdie sparrow in front of my eyes...... yeeeekk!!!  It didn't make me feel much better....

  1. Jammer dat de natuur zo wreed is. Dat vinden wij als mensen natuurlijk heel zielig. Het is wel de werkelijkheid. Goede foto's!

  2. Cool shots, no wonder all the birds left. I guess they need to eat but why in your yard, right?

  7. Het is een prachtige vogel en prachtig staat hij op de foto. Het is zielig voor de kleintjes maar de grote vogels moeten ook eten. Liever niet in je tuin begrijp ik. hihihi
