murderous

today in the cemetery I was drawn by a loud noise like several squirrels arguing. I found a Carrion Crow clubbing a Jay to death. I've seen them do it to feral pigeons, but never to another Corvid, and nothing like as noisy. As I approached the crow flew off, leaving the Jay still and tattered, its head lolling to one side.
