Not for the Faint of Heart

I went back to look for my kestrel this afternoon and as I was ready to leave I saw this guy fly by me with a starling in his talons.  He flew to the top of a tree and devoured the entire bird, then wiped his beak on the limb, smiled down at me and took off.  Got to love it.  (This is not a kestrel according to one of my flickr friends - but his slightly bigger cousin - the Merlin Falcon.
