Urban Falcon

No not a new bike . Today I was treated to the remarkable spectacle of a falcon calmly devouring a pigeon right in the middle of a busy shopping area ( Shelton Square Coventry ) It didn't seem bothered by people , including myself, walking up and filming it .

Probably being used by a pest control company to scare the pigeons off..... don't think he's meant to eat em all though :lol:

 

All the other pigeons that normally infest the square were sitting in a row on a high building looking very worried and depressed . Their turn will come .

Resident falconer here, that's a female sparrowhawk. I've hunted with one in the past, absolute murderous little bast*rds despite their small size

 

Nah, that's deffo a pigeon. Seen loads round our way. I got paid once to count dead pigeons on Liverpool docks. I had to paint them yellow to make sure they stayed dead and didn't get counted twice. So I believe myself to be an expert on the species.
