To my surprise, as I was scrolling through 300 trail cam videos, I came across a hawk swooping down and carrying away a raven as their prey. I was in horror and fascination at the same time, I could not believe that a hawk would be considering a raven as a meal. 😱
During my research, I found articles stating that if a hawk cannot find any small critters then ravens will do as a yummy meal. You can read more here.
I applied a slow motion filter to capture the event as well. There is a beauty and a dark side to nature!
More and exciting trail cam videos for this month to be posted soon!
It’s so rare to capture a hawk on a trail camera. We feel very lucky to have captured footage of this guy (on the right) that landed at the back of our cabin. I love the attitude and entitled stare at the camera. 🥰 To read more about hawks in South Carolina visit Wild Bird World.
