Today I took both of my pigeons, Noah and Brutus out on a walk and after walking for 10 mins we sat down to rest of the steps of a church. Brutus who has no tail feathers due to being wounded by crows as a baby was on my arm and I started petting him. When I pet him he usually flies a few feet away and does a little cooing display. This time he flew off he went to far and ended up in the road in front of a car he flew out of the way of the car but as he was about to turn and come back a coopers hawk dove out of a tree and began to pursue him it chased him down a block and I chased after them. The hawk was very close behind him and they were only a foot or two from the ground. As I sprinted after them Noah got scared from the whole thing and flew the opposite direction. I have been looking for both of them for hours and haven't found them. What do you think are the chances that a pigeon with no tail feathers was able to escape a coopers hawk? I was so stupid to freeflight him with no tailfeathers. I guess this is the end.
