Something interesting

I saw something I would have never dreamed of this morning. About 6:30 I was sitting outside watching the world wake up and watching the hummingbirds going from feeder to feeder. Two males got into a fight, which isn't unusual. They locked up and went to the ground which is a little unusual but happens from time to time. After about 10 seconds on the ground they broke up and one started off. The other one caught him about 50' away and both went back to the ground. As I watched them going down an owl came out of a tree another 50' away and before they knew what was happening he had them both. He flew back up into a nearby tree with empty talons. Both hummers were clamped in his beak. As fast and maneuverable as hummers are I would not have thought anything could catch one. Being so involved in their fight cost both of them their lives. There has to be a moral in there somewhere. Just thought I would share something I saw.

Good to know----I'll leave them damn owl's alone
Just cause it's loud don't make it fast & just cause it's shiney don't mean it's protected.

Moral of the story is; don't become so distracted by a relatively small event that you forget, given a chance big brother will swoop down and eat your dumb ***.
