I lost a bird during the day today. This was my 1st loss to a predator. The birds were loose and it is very quiet around here on weekdays, very rural neighborhood if you can even call it that. I can't make out any tracks but the body was right next to the coop where the snow is already trampeled. The head was gone and the organs were eaten but not the meat. There was a huge pile of feathers but they were not spread out like there was a struggle. It was too clean to be a dog. We have foxes, coons, coyote, bob cats, hawks, bears, etc. Any guesses on what it was? I'm thinking hawk but if not I want to go ahead and set a trap.
