The Brooklyn Museum headless pigeon and his co-hort Hawk 44-A

Was happily startled by this scene the other day walking behind the Brooklyn Museum on the way home.  Distracted by museum detritus in a giant dumpster I looked up and was about 15 ft from this sort of urban” National Geographic scene.  Was fascinating.  The hawk was pulling the feathers off the neck area of the bird before eating and feathers slowly drifted across the street and into the air.  The head was about 30ft away.  Cars would drive by getting with-in 6 ft and she held her ground.  Thinking of using the tags on her left leg to see if I can identify it thru the tagging system (is there an App for that?) but feel free to yourself and let me know if you get any info on this bad-ass Brooklyn bird.
