Branches and Clouds

Yesterday's sky featured some wispy high altitude clouds that formed sinuous parallel lines. I am not sure what these are called.

In the afternoon I had the opportunity to watch a Cooper's Hawk dismember a bird at relatively close range. It sat outside my window while it plucked the wings and feathers off its prey. I could not see the prey very well, but from what I could see, it looked like a robin.
