The coming of the Apocolyspe?

I'm seeing some weird things these days. Yesterday morning the neighbors dog chased a rabbit around the neighborhood, which really isn't weird, but it is the first time I saw it happen around here.

Then later in the day as I gathered the kids to get Kat from the commuter train, some movement caught my eye and I turned in time to see a bird nip another in the tail feathers, this followed shortly by a cloud of white down. Since this happened in the park only a few houses away, I decided to drive by and sure enough it had been a hawk, who stood upon its still live prey, stamping on the poor wiggling creature no and then with its talons.

Now, admittedly we live close to some woods, so a hawk is not an unusual sight, but to see one hunt in a park was something very odd.

Anyway that was yesterday. I awoke today, so it's not the end of the world.
