Fresh pigeon is a great way to start the day...

That's a baby. They still have the peachy chest, yellow eyes, and brown/black striped tails. Running around on the ground is another give-away. :)

I thought it was one of the kids given the mess he/she was making!

Heh. And thanks Goggla!

Yeah, Christo always uses a dustbuster after he's done with a pigeon.

I photographed the hawk from about 15ft. I didn't have a telephoto lens but the hawk was completely unfazed anyway. I was not the only person shooting but the hawk remained very cool about the attention.

S'amatter, Anon. 12:12, you've never heard the old Tennyson bromide, "Nature red in tooth and claw" - or in this case, beak? That's survival.
