Juvenile Red-tailed Hawk Eats A Squirrel

On New Year's Day, I got to watch a juvenile Red-tailed Hawk eat a squirrel just east of Bethesda Fountain.  These photos are not for the squeamish.  Skip to another post, if you'd rather not see these images.

The squirrel was quite large and the Red-tail had a hard time flying with it and keeping it balanced.
