    This bird killed a pigeon in my garden today and ate it. It was quite a big bird and I don't know what it is. can anyone identify it for me? thanks :)
  • Hi Christine

    Looks like a female sparrowhawk (males are smaller, and more bluish) - anyone else agree?

  • Yes Sparrowhawk,the usual culprit in gardens.

  • Hey, this is definitely female Sparrowhalk having brown back and wings, and brown bars underneath. Females are usually larger than males.
