Utterly amazing this morning!

Today was to feature an entry about the return of Barn Swallows, but this morning I was witness to something extraordinary. What you are about to read, I did not make up for the sake of this blog!
Besides the graphic photo linked below, my only other caveat is that my identification may be incorrect.
I'll refer to the predator as a falcon, but it could've been a hawk, kite, kestrel. I'm just not experienced enough to identify these birds of prey as they're tough to observe up close!

I just dropped my daughter off at pre-school. As I left and approached the parking lot, I hear that familiar ruckus of rowdy crows.

Above the parking lot I see two crows flying about and in my field of vision, from left to right, a falcon, zooms by with a bird in its talons!!!

The predator lands right in the middle of the parking lot with its prey twitching and putting up a pathetic attempt of some struggle.

The crows are cackling...
