Raptor Wednesday

Cooper Hawk amidst the Rock Doves!A dangerous ballet in the sky for the flock, which has the confusion of numbers on their communal side.There was no killing in this swirl, nor in the one seen the very next day in the same general area.Nor in the hawk/pigeon flurry yesterday before the snow flurries.In fact, when I notice the pigeons up, I always cast a sharp eye for the cruising hawk(s).This one flew off towards Green-Wood.An awful lot of hawking is all about silhouettes. The long tail and rounded wings of an Accipiter, for instance, are striking from a distance.
