Murder Hawk

As I began my walk through at work today, I noticed more feathers than normal.

I thought, “Man those look like one of the pigeons got hit or something.”

“Or looking at the blood, maybe a hawk got them.”

As I turn to the right I wonder, “Is it still hanging out?”

As the Hawk turns to announce that yes, she is.

I see those feathers, and OH! I may have missed the Hawk committing the murder, but I did find some incriminating evidence. Once again an animal looks at me like, “ARE YOU REALLY TAKING MY PIC WHILE I AM EATING?”

And while I was getting the last shot to confirm species… that Murder Hawk shook its tail feathers some.
