Nature red in tooth and claw

Didn't know where to post this but I stumbled on it on youtube. Would not have anticipated a sparrowhawk being smart enough to do this. Gets sick of the magpie screaming, and drowns it in the bird bath!

Happy Renting

Smart sparrowhawk. I wonder how intelligent they are compared to corvidae and parrots.

I once saw a stoat fighting a rat in a muddy roadside puddle. It was a bit like one of those cowboy scenes where two men are fighting & trying to drown each other.

The stoat latches onto the rat's throat and the rat thrashes around until it's exhausted.

The stoat bounded away over a ploughed field dragging the rat in it's mouth. Quite dramatic.
