Pointy-winged bogeyman.

The shadow cast by this silhouette is the last thing you want to see, or perhaps will see, if you are a migrating shorebird.

=) Yup. Was on the Washington coast at Olympic NP and the guy there told me about Peregrines and the clean work they make of birds around there and sure enough, we ran into a carcass on the beach with the breast meat SO cleanly cut out, it was amazing. Everything else was left there.

Yow. Makes me very glad I'm bigger than they are.
