So sad. One of the many reasons I am excited about heaven, there will be no more pain, no more death!
Blessings,
Cindy

That makes me so sad! Mourning doves are pretty much idiots, but that's precisely why I adore them so much!

Hartwood Roses said...

Whatever got that bird has to eat, too ... it's just difficult to think about it sometimes.

Chatty Crone said...

I hate to think of what happened!

TexWisGirl said...

awww! yup, they are easy grabs for most hawks. bless 'em.

Nellie said...

They just don't move quickly enough to escape predators.:-(

Barbara Shallue said...

Oh, no! I know it's part of nature's cycle, but still...

NCmountainwoman said...

Doves are among my least favorite birds. I'm pulling for the hawk every time.

Vicky said...

Oh- ouch! Not my favorite birds either, but would rather chase them off then see this happen :)

Sally said...

Doesn't matter to me what kind of bird, it still hurts to see. :(

Linda said...

Uh oh! Poor thing! Now someone is "mourning" for him!

WAIT, what does this mean for you?

Vicki Lane said...

Love the doves and love the hawks -- but this IS poignant.

Since I am already grieving human losses and find this tragic despite it being "nature's way" I must comment, Ms. A, on you telling a story of such magnitude in two subtle, heartrending photographs. My mentor was a staff photographer for NEWSWEEK decades ago. He used to say "Anyone can take a picture. Not everyone can take a good one." He was a documentary photographer who would have found in this everything he tried to teach me and do in his own photojournalistic storytelling: too poignant for words, but invites tears. Look how far you've come.

Glad to read that I'm not the only one who thought the bird came to a terrible end........

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

Oh dear! A cat or hawk? I always hate to see my cats catch a bird.

Betty Manousos said...

sad sight, but that's what hawks do...


big hugs!

Betty Manousos said...

or cats?

Betsy Adams said...

That is SO sad..... Hope you didn't see the hawk get him... Doves are favorite meals of Hawks... We have Doves here --and I am always afraid that they won't live very long...

Hugs,
Betsy

Unfortunately we, too, find aftermaths like this around our house. The hawks in the neighborhood think doves make a tasty meal.

Alexandra said...

How funny! I talked about birds today too!

I Wonder Wye said...

OH NO

A hawk chased a bird into one of our windows the other day…….

Saraheinä said...

Good pictures, they sure don't need any words to tell a story.

LL Cool Joe said...

Oh no thats so tragic.

Deborah said...

:(

troutbirder said...

Maybe a hawk. Just as likely a feral or free range domestic cat. If so time to get the traps out. And solve the problem.

Terri @ Backward B Ranch said...

Oh no! Im guessing a cat got that one.

Pat Tillett said...

unfortunately, these poor things always seem to have reason to mourn. Around here it's house cats, wild cats, and raptors. The mourning doves are such easy prey.
