Cooper's Hawk dines on pigeons

The flock of pigeons above is to be found at Hwy. 400 and the North Canal Rd. in the Holland Marsh.   They are always in a flock and seem to safe under most circumstances.   When not on the hydro wires soaking up the sun, they are found huddled in the shadows under the massive highway over-pass hidden from prying eyes.   Occasionally one makes a mistake and ends up as meal for a raptor, such as the Cooper's Hawk, seen here under that same bridge devouring its catch.
