A new visitor to the garden

We have a new Cooper's hawk visiting our garden.

This one is a juvenile, maybe an offspring of the one who we used to see. Anyway he is still learning. A few weeks ago he caught a small bird. Probably not big enough to have justified the energy of catching it, but good practice. Yesterday he got a pigeon. The poor bird is still alive in these pictures. It was trying to move, but just resulted in the pair shuffeling along the grass.
