Dead body in my backyard

wirelessI noticed Chester sniffing around under one of the trees in our backyard, and discovered this fallen bird.

Upon closer inspection, it looks as if the bird is a predator.  There is what appears to be a tail is sticking out of its beak.  A field mouse? Did the last meal prove to be the Last Supper?  I could see no marks of violence.

Does anyone know what kind of bird this is?
