Red-tail vs. Opossum along Disposal Road

Red-tail vs possum

Stephen Buckingham writes:

I witnessed a standoff by Disposal Road this past weekend between a Red-tail and an opossum.  The Red-tail wanted to eat the opossum, but after fluttering around the opossum trying to figure out whether it was a good idea to move in for the kill, the Red-tail thought better of it and left.

Thanks, Steve!

    Amazing shot and capture of this encounter. Hopefully the Juvenile Red-Tail learned something from this encounter. Opossums are not just big rats.
