More on the (Common) Black Hawk

Just barely caught this common black hawk under a large mesquite tree. I got as close as I felt I could without disturbing it and took a few pictures. It was tearing something apart, and I thought a good zoom shot would help identify its meal, but I am only able to guess it was a fish of some sort. I almost felt sorry for it having to slowly tear apart bits and pieces to eat.

After a bit it got tired of me watching or it got a little nervous and decided to hop off a little. Here's a short video of that. Right after that it hopped behind a bush for more privacy. That was when I finally got the hint and left it alone.
