ature is beautiful. Nature is amazing. Nature is cruel.
I love the wildlife but I often don’t love their ways.
Bon Bon Pond is home to an ever-increasing number of Bald Eagles who have developed quite a taste for muskrat. While it’s thrilling to see the big birds around here it’s not as much fun to watch them hunt. On Sunday a young raptor I hadn’t seen before decided to catch dinner and eat it right in front of my living room window.
Watching him consume the unfortunate little creature was gruesome yet fascinating. I was impressed that nothing—sans the tail and legs—went to waste. Nature—at its most efficient.
