Warning Graphic Content! If you're not interested in seeing a mouse get caught and eaten, you might want to view these pictures of Pale Male from Friday.
Pale Male patiently waited in a tree branch on Sunday evening for supper to arrive near Cleopatra's Needle.
I was pleased to see the photographers who watch Pale Male regularly, made sure he had an unobstructed flight path to his common hunting areas.
After hunting too fast for me to capture the kill, he jumps up on a low hanging tree branch bringing a few blades of grass along with his prey.
He's caught a mouse.
Soon he moves to a higher tree branch.
He takes about ten minutes to consume the mouse.
At the end, he swallows what's left in one huge gulp.
He then used a number of tree branches as "toothpicks" to clean his beak.
