A Red-Tailed Hawk Eating a Caterpillar

This hawk was spotted in Nehalem, Oregon on a backcountry road full of fields of green in Jan 2018. This caterpillar was just a snack because a couple hours later it finally caught 2 mice almost back to back after waiting for hours on a telephone wire. I was lucky enough to capture both kills too, which made for my first hawk eating prey pictures .
