Seems it hit the fence and broke its poor little neck... what a tragedy.
I sure hope that's not a hawk and if it is you might want to remove the picture. They are federally protected.
x2, I'd remove that pic ASAP!
Its definitely a hawk. Sharp shinned hawk or coopers hawk. Its tough to tell from the picture.
Federally protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.
Some states, such as my own, they also have further protection as a species of special concern.

Yep. I would delete that photo, or it could be use as evidence in the US Court System.
Hawks are protected by Federal Law and for that you stand before a Federal Judge.
Last summer I had left the drivers window down in my pick up truck after working night shift, so that the truck would not be so blazing hot when I returned to the truck later that evening.
Late that afternoon, I went to my truck to go to work and there was a dead sharp shank on the front passenger side seat.
I guess it had been chasing a song bird that had entered the open window on the drivers side and had struck the closed window on the passengers side.
I made haste to get rid of it.
I bet the coyotes wore their dentures out chewing on that thing.
I thought hawks actually flew of with its prey. Although I woke up to a headless duck one morning. She was sitting perfectly normal except without her head. This happened over night, still wondering what that was...???
Owls will do that. Mink might. Hawks will fly off with prey they can carry. Otherwise, they'll sit on the ground and eat it.
