Yummy,... but what???

I have seen hawks dining on pigeons lots of times, but this seemed like something larger than a pigeon. A pigeon on steroids???? Young hawk was way up on a branch. It was impossible to see if the meal's head or feet were up there. When a raptor dines the food goes first to the crop (below throat area), then gets digested.


When this hawk finished dining it didn't fly off as usual. It waddled down the branch and sat there. Too stuffed to fly. Dame Edna Hawk!
