Ron Wozny sends me some wild photos and videos of birds and squirrels; this one is a doozy of a Cooper’s hawk plucking a pigeon before eating it.
He emailed, “I got about a hour’s worth of video and tons of stills of my girl Alice having pigeon for lunch, a little clip of her in my yard.”
A couple other readers noted how they named their resident Cooper’s hawk, Alice.
I love how fastidiously Alice plucks the pigeon.
Wild of the Week, a celebration of wild scenes and doings around Chicago outdoors, runs on the Sun-Times outdoors page on Sundays, as warranted.
In the fall and winter, I mix in Buck of the Week: Unplugged, the celebration of live big bucks around Chicago outdoors, on Sundays.
There are a multitude of ways to send nominations of WOTW or BOTW: Unplugged: on Facebook (Dale Bowman), Twitter (@BowmanOutside) or email (email@example.com).
