An immature Cooper's Hawk has killed another accipiter in our front yard
and we have been observing it eat the other bird for the last 45 minutes.
I have not been able to identify the prey item as to whether it is a coop
or a sharpie.  I have not been able to I.D. the prey item for fear that I
will disturb the feeding individual and the food therefore will be wasted.
I will see if there are any remains in the morning to hopefully make a
determination on I.D. of the prey item.  Do any of you have any wisdom on
this matter or have read or whitnessed similar observations?
