Cattaraugus, NY, USA
I was sitting in my living room having a cup of coffee watching the birds feeding. This Mourning Dove was sitting on my deck railing eating some seed when this Sharp-shinned Hawk swooped down and grabbed the dove. He was pulling feathers while the dove was still struggling. I had to run downstairs to get my camera hoping to get it before he took off with his catch. As you can see, there are feathers everywhere.
