Uinta Ground Squirrel (Potgut) and the red-tailed hawk

Well, I was on my way to a known colony location but when I arrived all was not well for the colony of squirrel.  Red-tailed hawk had one down...

He blasted off with prey in tow...

but lost him in his haste

a looker on..... a sad tale no lunch for some and loss for another...
