The Crime Scene:

The first hit…

Image

The final kill:

Image

Suspect #1 Cooper Hawk:  I believe it to be this bigger one. It is amazing to watch it fly into a tree at full speed with a burst of panicking birds exiting. If the hawk flys out, the chase continues…If not, it’s lunch time with one less bird.

Suspect #2 Sharp Shinned Hawk: Smaller and probably not guilty of THIS crime, but many others, I am sure. Hey, Ya gotta eat!

    Better get out the chalk and crime scene tape! and good luck identifying which one – since a lineup is just not their thing. 🙂 RIP little dove.

    Based on the arrangement of the “remains” I deduce the larger of the two, however you have conveniently left out the red-tail for some reason…. do I smell a cover up? Hmmmm Call Hodges in the lab and find out what’s holding up the DNA results… assuming you swabbed the area… 🙂

    As Investigation Director, I can not confirm or deny that “profiling” was done to identify suspects. Nor can I comment on the crime scene evidence at this time. I can say that the mentioned red tail was ruled out of this case because of it’s slow speed and poor maneuvering skills.
