Anybody home?

This is the first in a series of photos documenting the attack of baby Bluebirds by a Rat Snake. While bringing some brush down to the burn pile, I noticed something strange at the Bluebird house. My first reaction was that the birds had tried to bring something into the nest, but of course it was way too big.

Nature is not kind, sometimes. The wildlife lover in me was horrified, but the wildlife photographer in me was fascinated.
