Spitting Out the Feathers

I shot this American Kestrel at the Mountsberg Wildlife Centre. I took a series of pictures while the kestrel consumed a baby chick. The chick had previously expired so there was no suffering but rather graphic nonetheless. I am posting the final stage of the meal: ejecting the unwanted feathers.
