Not Sharing

A few days ago our local pair of Red-tailed Hawks killed a cottontail at the end of my neighbor's driveway. Didn't take long before the moochers started to show up.



It didn't take much Magpie harrassment for the female to get disgusted and take off with most of the rabbit. The male refused to move and stolidly ignored the Magpies until he finished his portion. I don't think the Magpies got much more than a smell.

Nice! We've got a neighborhood full of those moochers, and I love watching them.

As Steve's bartender friend Montana said in the Golden Spur last Saturday night, "No mooching!"
