Hungry visitor

This morning, while doing chores, I frightened off a large bird but didn't see what it was. Then I came out of the bunny barn and spotted a dead pigeon right in front of me. And sitting on top of the closest power pole was the large bird. It's a Prairie Falcon waiting for me to get away from his meal.

Just to make it easier for the bird, I picked the pigeon up and tossed it closer to the pole and farther away from me. I went back to hauling water to the birds but noticed a short time later that the falcon was munching away while taking looks around every couple seconds to see if anything was coming close enough to steal his meal. A couple hours later and all that's left are some feathers......
