Thanks, Yep they were taking taking a couple of smaller birds along with a few doves last summer but I haven't seen any feathers in our yard this year, yet. Last year on occasion one wound swoop in and perch on a shepherd's hook for a bit. Thanks for the visit!!
You know the coopers are happy when you go outside and think itís snowing, only to discover itís down feathers coming down

I have found several times in my yard simply a circle of feathers. At one point for a period of 2 weeks you could set your watch based upon when they would visit the yard. It seems they almost have a programmed route, and as long as they find food they keep coming. My experience is they prefer doves. I donít get doves any more...

Yep they were hammering the doves pretty heavily last year. We've still have quite a dove population here.
