Poor waxwing, I though Canadian birds were nicer than this merlin!
Not a question of nice they all have to eat to stay alive. In the Natural World everything eats something else.
I know. on a eagle nes t webcam on Friday I saw the eagle parents dissect, eat and feed their eaglets with a duck and an egg popped out of the duck!
The Merlin Jeremy has the pleasure to have as a dinner guest is one of the prize birds of the American West. It is called the Prairie Merlin. The males, which this bird is, is a stunning powder blue color. He could not have picked a more beautiful prey item. Two of the finest raptors and prey items I have seen at the same table.
