Hawks are among the world's most majestic creatures. They embody a sense of power and intelligence, and they're some of nature's most skilled hunters. But when humans think of ferocious predators, we usually picture lions and tigers. Hawks don't usually come to mind unless we see one flying overhead.
Something tells me that birds -- like this unfortunate duck -- are fully aware of the mighty hawk's fury.
Talk about a powerful bird. I feel bad for the duck, though.
Most hawks begin hunting when they're six weeks old.
They've been known to eat just about anything, and they won't hesitate to chow down on fellow birds.
The only restriction is that the prey must be small enough to pick up and carry.
Hawks attack and kill their prey with ridiculously sharp talons.
The moral of the story is simple: don't mess with these birds.

This is why I don't let my dog outside anymore without my supervision. She's not that tiny, but I've seen too many hawk videos to feel comfortable about leaving her to fend for herself.
