Sharp shinned. Size of a mourning dove is clincher.

 

Any idea why it died?

Bunch of sick or dead birds turning up lately. Possibly west nile.

 

Thanks everybody for the confirmation. Cool to see up close.

It did not have any noticeable injuries that I could find. I have no idea. It was a good distance into the woods not near any homes.

Being such a small hawk, most of the other raptors could have done it but I'd expect at least a little breast meat to be eaten.

 

The way they charge into the brush recklessly after prey, I'm sure they bonk off branches etc. Powerlines and fences are tough on fast birds for that reason.
