Hawk versus Snake - Red-Tailed Hawk


Red Tailed Hawk eating a snake

Red Tail Hawk swallowing the remains of its prey. Shorline Park, Mountain View, CA. One second this hawk was perched on top of a nearby tree, and the next it was in the tall grass trying to subdue its recent catch. After a few minutes it flew into the dense cover of a nearby tree where it proceeded to eat its meal - five feet above a couple having a picnic.
