As I was meandering across my property harvesting veggies I noticed this clump of down and feather by the barrier fence to one of my hardy kiwis

Was it a fight, an attack and a fight, a bird tangeled in the netting that cause such a pillow fight type mess,

Also need help with the bird involved... which only seems to be one....

thanks Greg

i don't know what kind of bird that was, but I regularly find what I refer to as "bird explosions" of feather and down in my yard - confirmed a few days ago by witnessing an attack in progress, mine are a result of feral cats making their kills, eating everything that tastes good to them, and leaving behind the feathers.

As Mr Livingston suggested a pigeon and probably a cat, buzzards don't leave the "scene of the crime" this clean or they leave nothing at all.
And there is probably a nice hiding place for the cat and a food source for the pigeon nearby if you look around.
