"Stuff is eaten by dogs, broken by family and friends, sanded down by the wind, frozen by the mountains, lost by the prairie, burnt off by the sun, washed away by the rain. So you are left with dogs, family, friends, sun, rain, wind, prairie and mountains. What more do you want?"

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.
