I once saw a large vole crossing a two lane highway, with a crow in pursuit. The crow was trying to grab the vole in its beak. In the attempt it repeatedly flew up and down in its pursuit. I don't know if it ever actually succeeded in catching the rodent.

Subject: [obol] Crow and mouse

Speaking of voles - that reminded me of an odd sight I saw a little over a week ago as I was driving down my home street. Perched on a wire was a crow with what I presumed was a mouse dangling from its claws - at any rate, it was a small rodent with a longish tale. I wasn’t able to stop, but I did wonder whether the Crow had actually caught the mouse or had just picked up a dead one which it had found.
