Rustic dining in Roslindale

Hawk eating something in Roslindale backyard

Scott Kelley reports looking out at his Roslindale backyard today and watched a hawk finish up a meal atop a stump there. By the time he noticed what was going on, the hawk was mostly finished, so he wasn't able to discern what was on the menu. He adds:

The raptor looks to be a juvenile Cooper’s Hawk. Maybe too large for a Sharp-skinned?

Immature Cooper's Hawk it is. Thanks @Jeff F!

Look at that foot (from the prey?) in the middle of the stump. It's dark and blends in with the wood. But it's not much smaller than the hawks' (and also has a huge talon).
