Today on my birding drive I came across a dead opossum in the road, there was a young Red-tailed Hawk feeding on it. Winter is so tough on the young birds, I'm glad he was able to get a meal out of it. There was a Turkey vulture waiting for his turn. I stopped the car and threw the opossum in the woods, this way there was no chance of the birds getting hit by passing cars.
Temps ranged from 25-41f. It was cloudy but calm. A really great day for a hike.
