You see some strange things when you’re out on the job. We recently spotted a prairie falcon that had successfully captured a California ground squirrel. Unfortunately, it appears that catching such a large prey prevented the falcon from taking off with his spoils, and his lunch had attracted unwanted attention. After about 15 minutes of staring at each other, the falcon abandoned his catch and the turkey vultures won an easy meal.
