This afternoon, I was in our kitchen when there was a sudden gun-shot sound at the window. I rushed outside to look and saw a Sharp-shinned or Coopers Hawk with a Mourning Dove fall to the ground nearby in a flurry of feathers. My presence made the hawk fly off even though I dodged right back inside, and the dove died right there. They had both slammed into the window; it's amazing the window didn't break. The hawk never did return for its meal.
