I have added the scientific name. This is a very important piece of information as it removes the spotting from the unidentified portion of our database. Thanks for adding it to the Raptor mission!

thank you, it grabbed that squirrel out of its nest about 20 ft from where I was standing.

By looks of those ears, I would say it is a squirrel . But I can see the mythical creature you are referring to injica! Nice spot Matt!

Funny spotting, is this a rabbit that it is holding? It looks like a myth animal, legs for running and wings for flying!
