Raptor Wednesday

Last week, we espied a Cooper Hawk with prey inside a yew. This week, we’re inside an arbor vitae. These hawks do like their cover.This could be the very same mature bird. This time, lunch was one of those white “doves” which are actually homing pigeons.This was the plucking site, under some nearby yews. Jays and nuthatches led me here.
This is the third of these white-feathered homing pigeons I’ve come across this winter in Green-Wood. All have been kills. I wonder if people are releasing them in the cemetery for funerals? Haven’t spotted a live one, yet. These Accipiters have better eyes than I do.
