Day Hunting

Site 1

I was leaving and noticed the male in an odd position, roosting a bit more out in the open(very close to the yew roost). I stopped my truck, and took a picture. It was later that it became apparent that it was not an odd roosting position, but it was scoping out a pair of robins below it. A split second after I took the picture, it swooped down and tried (unsuccessfully) to nab one of the robins. It made a second attempt at the robin flying from the ground and chasing it through the Yew. All this happened at roughly 4 pm. Just happened to be at the right place right time to see all this occur. Who knows whether this was out of necessity or merely an opportunity since there are six little ones to feed?
