Return to Identifying a Bird

large black bird predator

I have 3 large black - all black birds on the roof behind my house. They are hunting the birds feeding in my yard. They attacked one of the doves and did eat it on the roof where they carried it off to. I usually have a hawk in the area, but he is not around today yet. These 3 are hunting together. One chases the dove and the other two cut him off. As he changes path, the other on attacks.
