He Was Not, However, Wearing A Little Hat

Just saw, through my window, a blackbird jam his head into the ground and withdraw it, reeling a worm out of the earth with his beak, the worm stretching before giving way and popping from his hole with a nigh-audible twang. I’ve always known that such things happen, but I don’t think I’ve ever actually seen it, except in cartoons.
