Sparrow Hawk on kill

Geoff Carpenter

Birchington-on-Sea, United Kingdom

Artist's Description

This is a European Sparrow Hawk just after it had downed and killed a Wood pigeon and was taken through my kitchen window. After this was taken, the hawk systematically plucked the pigeon and ate most of it before flying off. We now have feathers all over the garden.
