Cooper’s Hawk at my Window

Cooper’s Hawk at my Window. Starling crashes into window, all kinds of thrashing going on so I look up and a cooper’s hawk is trying to catch it in between all the branches and feeders I have up and them pins it to the window and takes off with it. It took a long time to kill, jumping up and down driving its talons in and out. I was going to get video but that would be kind of gross, even if it was a starling.
