It's always a little sad when a backyard regular is lost. Up until a few weeks ago I had a large family of crested pigeons frequenting my garden. Now they are thinned out and I find the occasional pile of feathers. I suspect the neighbourhood cats but there has also been a Perigine falcon about.

When our resident mockingbird leaves we always miss them as each has seemed to have a character of their own, but all have dominated their territory which they defend vigorously, which is probably why most have a reign of two or three years. This is the fourth pile of feathers I've found and several of our sentinels have just disappeared, but a new one always arrives to claim the yard and the holly berries on one or more of the trees. .. (....as to cats, generally, the Mockingbirds teach them how to behave.  We had two cats who after several encounters would either watch from under a bush or would vicariously catch the birds from the other side of a window. ..  Of course the Blue Jays participated in the lessons.)
