Hawk

I'm feeding Shaun and Kristen's cats, and as I was leaving their place this morning, I glanced out the window to look at the top of the awning next door (I have an affection for an upside-down plastic alligator that's been there for 2 years) and there was a hawk sitting there, with a torn up pigeon in its claws. Because of the arrangement of the buildings, it was about 8 feet away from me. I tried to get my camera out, but I guess the movement spooked it, so it flew away. I went outside and I could see the hawk up in a tree in the backyard:

I went back up into Shaun's place and out on the back porch and I was able to get a couple of shots there. If you look closely, you can see the pigeon:
