Not sure what is it… a hawk?

As I was walking into my kitchen, I glanced through the sliding door, to the back yard. At first I wondered what can it be, that huge bird under the evergreen? Then I noticed it was some hawk-like creature. THEN I noticed it was stomping on something…

Turned out to be a pigeon.

Once he killed it, he tried to take it into his claws and fly up.

Well. He flew up, but lost the pigeon at the height of the fence…

The pigeon is still there :/

If I’ll say I won’t be crying, does that make me a bad person?

  2. That’s a female Sparrowhawk, Emilia.
    How do I know she’s female? The much smaller male specialises in birds the size of sparrows (hence the name), but the female generally looks to larger prey, frequently pigeons. This is good for the male as, were he in competition with the female (50% larger) for food, she would probably add him to her diet sheet!
