Hi tweeters,

Feels good to be back on! Yesterday at soccer practice there were
probably around 80-90 starlilngs with a few band-tailed pigeons and with my
bad luck with raptors some sort of accipiter attacked. I heard the chink
chink alarm and heard the roar of the wings and saw them doing formation
flying. (band-tailed pigeons too)Of course I was busy so I could not watch
the whole thing and see if the hawk made a successful attack. I guessed that
it was an accipiter because all the birds flew away from the trees doing
formation flying rather than sit tight like an attacking falcon! Maybe next
