Death at the feeder!
Every thing had been going as normal at the feeder since my last entry. This morning I went out to fill the feeder as normal and spotted some feathers at the base of the tree where the squirrel corn feeder is. Something had gotten one of the mouring doves. There was no carcass, just featers and one spot of blood. I suspicion that the Red Tailled Hawk got him. This is the same tree that the hawk was in several days ago watching the squirrel. I'm sorry to see the dove gone, but this is the story of nature.

I always feel the same CK when I find circles of feathers in my garden. Our resident sparrowhawk makes a kill every so often and leaves the evidence behind. As you say though that's nature and, after all, hawks have to eat too.
That's the way it goes :(
When I read the title here I was afraid it was going to be the squirrel that the hawk had for his meal. It's sad to see the birds get caught but it's nature. I see all the vultures here eating the stuff along the roads that careless drivers hit. I feel sorry for those animals. dooley
I found feathers and a spot of blood by my feeder yesterday. It looks like Junco feathers :(
