Last spring I caught this young Cooper's Hawk with a fresh kill, just beside the river where I live. Poor pigeon, but a happy and well fed hawk.
May the pigeon rest in peace
And tonight, while hunting for insects, I came across this crime scene, at the very same place I saw the hawk feeding on a pigeon. Is the culprit the same ?
I have not seen the hawk lately, but I will keep my eyes open, as the killer might be back !
