Garden predation

Was it a Cat or was it the Sparrowhawk? I think a Cat! There was no evidence of damage to the Siskin, just lying on the floor by the feeders. Typical of a Cat predation, just caught for the sport, unlike the Sparrowhawk that would kill for food and leave only the bare bones and feathers. See link below, apparently no scientific evidence to prove cats are causing decline in Garden birds.
