Just now a crow caught a good sized young cotton tail bunny and pecked it to
death. My wife saw it fly over to the yard with the bunny still squirming,
grabbed by the neck. The crow then pounded it with its beak. There are a
number of bunnies that run around along the sides of the sidewalk and front
yards in our West Seattle neighborhood. This one was definitely at least a
month or so old. It seems like a very large prey item for a crow.
