Here is a crow I photographed with a mouse at Broughton Beach a few months ago. I wasn’t sure if crows could tear apart the animal like a raptor can. I know they use cars to tenderize squirrels before they can eat them.

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.
