    Default Any Ideas

    I found the remains of what I think was a Starling in our garden. Apart from the legs, beak and 1 or 2 small bones, there was only feathers left. I have not found any other body parts. Could this have been a Sparrowhawk, or more annoying a domestic cat? I have seen both in the garden.

    Looks absolutely classically spar', to me, Stephen.

    Yep, Sparrowhawk prey remains for me too. It probably carried the rest of the Starling away with it to finish off in peace away from crows / magpies / etc., that would mob it if they saw it feeding.
