Wife said that a bird was carrying another bird and struggling to fly with it. From the guts and feathers in the garden, it looked like a pigeon was the victim. 

What sort of garden bird would attack another bird? I didn't see it but wife said the bird looked small. 

 

Did the bird look like this ?? 🤣

He said it looked small, so maybe this is a more realistic interpretation of the offending predator 😉


Could be a sparrow hawk. We get them occasionally. Look like a bird of prey, but only the size of a medium sized seagull. 
An Angry one?

Deffo a sparrowhawk, seen it happen loads of times. 
Definitely a sparrow hawk.  Not long ago, one sat right outside on our front lawn, trapping a poor starling underneath it’s talons and picking it’s feathers off one by one.  Not uncommon in the fylde area. 

A Burnley bird?


I thought Sparrowhawk but showed her some pics on Google and she said it looked smaller. I just okay, must have been a Robin. 

Ohhhhh, you mean a flying type of bird?

🤣🤣

Magpie, raven, jackdaw, crow... all quite capable of said act. I'd put my money on it being a member of the corvid family, saw a magpie killing a pigeon once. 

The Ducklings round my way are predictors. I’ve named one Gnashers because it has ginger hair!!!


Was it a Duck?

Beat me to it.

Birds don’t exist.

Google it.

I googled it and all I got was a US conspiracy theory that birds were just drones spying on us.

That's fucking scary how much that picture looks like you.

It fucking is you! You have photoshopped the tache off. 

Look I have found the original as your Facebook profile picture.

You sly dog, thinking you could pull the wool over our eyes and pass yourself off as a Burnley lass!
