This time of year there is very little color outside. It's drab and dull and blah, so it was easy to spot the black and red colors of the above attach.
The cardinal didn't have a chance. By the time I noticed what was taking place the attach was over and the crows were all fighting for the spoils. There were at least six crows all wanting a piece of the cardinal carcass. The crow in the third picture got a hold of it and off he flew, however, the others were not far behind.
Would have preferred to have the crows take out a House Sparrow or Starling, you know an unattractive, nuisance type bird, instead of a daddy cardinal, alas.
