When a rat plays possum

So. Here's what we have from Tompkins Square Park today.

A red-tailed hawk in the tree. A rat, possibly stuck, maybe either dazed or playing possum. Rat out of the hole. Rat in tree to be dinner.

The thing I really admire about this hawk is his no nonsense , almost business like approach to the hunt.

that's a squirrel in the tree. which is good cuz that dead rat-in-the-hole is most certainly full of poison!
