A circle of Collared-Dove feathers in our garden tells a clear story.  First, those feathers were not there this morning.  Secondly, the pattern shows the victim was eaten from a perch in one of our dawn redwood trees.  Most likely nominee for diner: Cooper’s Hawk.

The Song Sparrows and robins are singing regularly at Joe Dancer Park now.  Turkey Vultures overhead and a passing Cooper’s Hawk there as well.
