I have a Crested Pigeon on a nest in my neighbour’s garden, but sadly this morning I found a carcass on my back lawn. Unanswered questions: Was it a cat or a raptor that took it? Was it one of the breed pair? The attached photo is of a barred feather which lay beside it.
Does it belong to a raptor, or the last bird that the raptor took?
The nest isn’t occupied at this moment.

The second bird made it about six metres up to the roof gutter. I popped out and had a look, it peered back at me, while the parents called with urgency. It then flew over to them, crash landing as well. The flights were highly amusing!
