Harvest Time

This time of year we daily see Steller’s Jays and Western Scrub Jays flying off with oak acorns in their mouths busily harvesting.  Today we were caught off guard when a Red-tailed Hawk flew up in front of us carrying something.  We watched him perched on a limb for some time, and eventually came to the conclusion that he had a squirrel in his talons.  I imagine it went something like this, --- a squirrel busy harvesting acorns failed to notice an approaching Red-tail and became harvested himself.
