New respect for Scrub Jays

We posted yesterday about the Scrub Jay who comes to our yard to eat bugs from the lawn. Today we saw him fly by carrying a mouse! We nad ho idea they ate mice or were strong enough to fly with one. He stopped to rest on the power line behind our back yard. We felt a little bad for the mouse, but maybe jay has a lady jay and chicks at home to feed and a nest that can be lined with mouse fur.
