Snake N Chick
Coachwhip Snake and Oriole Chick
Rocky Ford State Wildlife Area
The snake had climbed the tree and ignored attacking gray catbirds. But when he grabbed the oriole chick that he expected to be a luscious dinner, he discovered it had already been dead a while and was not edible. Disappointed, he withdrew and reinspected the chick several times before leaving--to the great relief of the catbirds whose nest was nearby.
