Sharp-shinned Hawk (Juvenile) with bird kill

Unfortunately, from time to time, we have a bird kill in the yard by various hawks which reside in the surrounding woods.  We are partially to blame when a bird is killed because we have multiple bird feeders on the property.  Today this juvenile Sharp-shinned Hawk captured a dove this morning.   He did not take his catch away (as they usually do) but de-feathered and eat his catch on the lawn.  He stayed on the lawn for over 30 minutes until we went out and chased it away.
