Road kill

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.
