I saw a Cooper’s Hawk sitting on top of the pigeon coop, but by the time I got my camera from the house, it was gone. Then I noticed it sitting on the ground, in the shadows. Was it hiding?
Cooper’s Hawk in the bird house (enclosure). He must have followed a pigeon in and then couldn’t get out. Hubby caught him with a net and set him free; the hawk wasn’t harmed. Can’t say the same for one of the pigeons; mostly just a pile of feathers left on the ground.
