Looks like a Brown Thrasher, maybe?
Great shot!

Can we go back to first base and ask "Who's" the hawk?

Edit: Nobody got the " Who's on first?" line? I'm very very old. I mean, I've seen a lot of black and white tv.

Ceylon, I thought the same thing until I noticed that the picture is labeled. Amazing shot.

Bigfoot does not comment in the threads, but this a great Photo, even though it is not a Thrasher, a LBJ I think.

WTH on the photo ? Were you in a helicopter pacing it to the left?LOL Obviously incredible shot.
As for the prey, no idea. Maybe a fledgling of some species?
