Hawks are ambush predators. Anyone who thinks otherwise has watched too many Disney fairy tails about nature. What ever ate your hen did not swoop out of the wild blue yonder nor did it have teeth, and fangs, to slash, grind, and tear apart it's victim. Your hen was ate much like a small child eats a plate of spaghetti. One strip or string at a time resulting in a fully articulated skeleton like that one in your image.
Did anyone else read this and think, "holy ****, that is like straight out of CSI or something", Because thats what I was thinkin haha.
At one time I wanted to be a falconer, but after much research it was just too big of a commitment and opted out. Seeing that video was badass, but makes me feel sorry for my girls. They have no chance if a hawk finds a gap in my netting. Like, literally no chance. No wonder the other two were so easy to get a hold of.
I figured bird of prey. We'd been out of town and the neighbor kid was letting opening and closing the coop for them
