There is sex.
I have seen squirrels, snapping turtles, muscovy ducks, and mocking birds in the very act of copulation.
There is violence.
I have seen mocking birds as they dive bombed-crows. I have seen crows as they dive-bombed hawks. I have seen a hawk as she/he tried to snatch a duck for a mid-day lunch.
There is murder.
I did not see the murder, but I discovered the skeletal remains. They were in "no-mans land", a slightly wooded area between Glen Oaks Ridge (where I live), and Glen Oaks Manor where Ben lives. I walk through this area several times each day as I take my dog Penne for her frequent walks.
Here are some photo's at the scenes of the crime.
My guess is that the victim was a possum. But I am no biologist, and I'd love to hear other opinions.
I also suspect that a hawk was the "perp", aided and abetted by some vultures who cleaned up the bones.
