No photo today, too sad at the carnage at the birdfeeders.  First feathers all over the ground underneath one of our feeders, could have been caused by a fox or hawk as both have been trolling the area looking for an easy target.

Then, sadly, a woodpecker was attacked at one of our finch tube feeders that is surrounded by a cage raised 6 feet up off of the ground and surrounded by a cage to keep out predators.

The woodpecker must have just landed on the cage part of the feeder and appeared to have either gotten his foot caught in the cage or grabbed on tight when he was and was attacked and killed, left dangling from his broken foot on the feeder.  Most definately the work of one of the red tail hawks.  Not sure how to deter them from attacking the birds while they are feeding.

Any suggestions or ideas?

If this is a fox you can raise up the feeders. If it is a hawk I don't know what to do./

It is really unfortunate having your birds being attacked at the feeders. Savage stray animals are really difficult to handle. I suggest you place your feeders near your door or window. So, you would easily monitor the birds that are feeding. And you can also shoo pests away. I hope you consider my helpful advice.

Oh how sad. It was such a sad moment for not being able to capture a beautiful scenario. That is why, personally, I always bring my camera with me. I even studied photography in one of the nicest universities in our country. I don't know. I always see myself capturing moment even that it is not important. I just love taking photos. It became my habit. It became my source of income. That is why it became my passion as well.

That's pretty sad. I hope you won't blame yourself for that. It's not your fault.
