On National Highway No.8, from Rewari to Gurgaon, was going by car. A shikra commonly known as hawk of gray color with whitish bars, all of a sudden came in front of our speeding car. A sudden break from both the sides prevented the mishap. Shikra was carrying a little squirrel in his piercing black claws, but to save his own life, he lost his grip on the prey. As baby squirrel fell on the road, it hurried towards the nearby bushes to save its life. Oops! My camera couldn’t capture that sight as it happened so quickly.
Happy we feel as the little squirrel’s life was saved or feel sad as shikra couldn’t get his meal?
