 Red-tailed Hawk / Snow Goose

Red-tailed Hawk / Snow Goose

Bosque Del Apache NWR NM

With thousands of Snow Geese in the area, some die of natural causes. I think that was the case here.

I think you are likely right on how the redtail captured this one.. I have seen eagles grab them and drag them across the water.. Seems like the snow goose is too big for the redtail.. Interesting.. V
