Look kids a Hawk!..... eating a squirrel.... what a great educational opportunity

Yeah. It was actually pretty interesting. A hawk was sitting atop our neighbors' swing set ripping apart the fluffy rodent. Here is a some trivia for you. It takes a remarkably long time for a hawk to eat a young squirrel. Mercifully, the swingset is a good hundred feet or so (fifty?), so while we could clearly see what was going on, we were spared the gore.
I did call the neighbors to warn them before the kids went out to play.
