A Cooper’s Hawk Disemboweling a Pigeon on Boston Common

This is exactly why I carry a camera with me at all times. On my walk home across Boston Common today I spied a juvenile Cooper’s Hawk, and made a few photos while he/she ate a pigeon in the snow near Tremont Street.

The meal began just before I arrived on the scene.

He's looking at me again. It was hard to get a profile shot because he turned as I circled.
