That's an eastern meadowlark. To my knowledge, they don't usually eat other birds, but in the winter when birds need a lot of protein, it's not uncommon to see such behavior. And it certainly has been frigid lately, which increases calorie requirements.

Subject: Can anyone ID this omnivorous warbler? - A few photos to provide views
Hi - We've looked at nearly a hundred photos and none look like this bird quite. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance - Nice to see the sun!
