Just looked out my office window and saw the most amazing sight.  A
Red-shouldered Hawk flying along, high in the sky, with a captured frog
(easy to ID from its flailing back legs hanging down) that was then attacked
by a Common Grackle.  The hawk managed to hang on to the frog while doing an
aerial ballet to dodge the grackle, at least for the 30 or so seconds it
took the group to fly out of my sight.
