Tuesday Teaser 082812 Ron Shields happened this American Kestrel last week on Disposal Road (where else?). What does the kestrel have in its mouth? (Thanks, Ron)
Looks like a caterpillar
A big, fat, tasty(?)caterpillar at that. I don’t know what species though.
Looks like a tomato hormworm.
@ Tom, I just looked up tomato hornworm, and it looks like a cool caterpillar to see. Its a shame that kestrel snapped it up. 🙂
