Blazing Cat Fur
Is this for real????
A 1 in a 100 000 000 shot.
I’m a 1 in a 100 000 000 guy.
photo shopped , birds can’t really handle a payload even comparatively large eagles have a tough time flying off with a 10 pound salmon or in my brothers case a marmalade cat.
birds are a prey item to weasels ,stoats, and ferrets , gen photo ,sky showed the before and after shots
It’s totally for real.
According to the RSPB, “The green woodpecker is the largest of the three woodpeckers that breed in Britain. It has a heavy-looking body, short tail and a strong, long bill.”. It mostly feeds on the ground so it hardly surprising that it was attacked by the most aggressive ground-feeding mammal. They have been known to attack much larger birds.
By contrast, the UK weasel is the smallest of the weasel family and males can weigh down to 36 g or 1.3 oz. Presumably, a juvenile will weigh less. I think an over aggressive young “lad” has bitten off more than he could chew!
That appears to be the case.
