    Yes, some hawks, in particular the Cooper's hawk, will eat birds. But I have to agree, it was more likely a cat (stray or pet) that got the bluejay.

    And-I am pretty sure it is a Juvenile Red tail in the pics. Note the belly band in some pictures and the white breast. Red-shouldered Juveniles have more of a brown streaked breast with no belly band.

    One of those Red Breasted Hawks got a rabbit in my yard. I have pics with the foot through the rabbit [entrails included!]

    our whole family enjoyed your slide show- especially when the hawk ripped the foot off of the bunny- my 8 year old LOVED it! thanks for sharing...

    I think you're all correct about a cat. I came home late last night and there was a cat slinking around in the wooded area next to my house. This would also explain why my indoor cat has been staked out by the window next to the front door. I think it's taunting him!

    I hate when those roaming cats do that! My indoor kitty takes it out on her "little sister" when she sees a cat outside in her territory...

    Did you get a close look at the cat? - Would love to know if it's one I'm trying to trap.

    Sorry for this straying off topic boomer! KTdid - it was dark out but I saw quite a bit of white fur, maybe some grayish spots?
