    hawk catching bird at the hardware store!

    this morning me and my friend went to the hardware store. I went inside and he sat in my truck with Lucy, my dog. I went in front of the truck and there was bags of seed stacked up with birds all over the bags eating loose seeds. they were almost tame I walked right by them. on the way out when I got to the bags a Redtail hawk flew off a bag 3ft. in front of me! I told another man a hawk was on that sack of seeds eating. he said there is feathers on the sack, I said duh hawks don't eat seeds they eat meat! I looked up and my buddy was pointing at his cell phone as he was sitting in my truck, he saw the whole thing and filmed the hawk sitting on and plucking the bird! it is a cool video, I have it in my email but don't know how to upload it to this forum,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    VIDEO ADDED BELOW,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    I was up in my treestand one day just kinda daydreaming when a redbird flew across the clearing in front of me and a little hawk hit the redbird hard in flight and feathers flew. The little hawk was sitting on the redbird when another hawk of the same size flew down and lit beside the redbird and the hawk that did the killing put his wing over the redbird as if guarding it from the 2nd hawk. It is a cruel world we live in.

    I liked to watch them in action as well until I watched one swoop down and kill one of my chickens 5 yards away from me. I looked like he busted a feather pillow when he hit it.
