I watched a Merlin fly over City Hall today.
Lisa and I found a dead Rock Pigeon in Pioneer Park. It showed clear signs of a raptor kill. Examining the evidence, it seemed to have been killed sometime in the afternoon. I female Cooper's Hawk often hunts in this area and we've seen it chase pigeons before and we presumed it was most likely Ms. Cooper's Hawk was responsible.
