Day 211: Approaching Prey

Having a large featherless assistant can be helpful in many ways.

For instance, if you have your assistant kill (and toast) your prey for you, you don’t have to do as much time-consuming foraging at lunch time.

But this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t still exercise caution when approaching fresh prey.

(After all, since you are much better at stalking prey than your assistant is, you can never be sure it is totally dead without checking it out for yourself).

For this reason, it always pays to approach your lunch with an initial measure of caution.

Mom killed my lunch for me again today - oh good!

I'll begin my initial descent, but I'll make it subtle in case the prey wakes up.

Using my natural grey as camouflage, I'll just sneak up on the prey.

So far, so good, Mom - looks like it is really dead today!

Still not a twitch, so I'll just dig in.
