I would say it sounds more like a mammal of some sort killing the Pigeons and then also getting the Screech Owl.

Subject: Re: [VTBIRD] Screech owl in Brandon
For a few weeks my dad has been finding dead pigeons on hay bales in our barn. It was obvious that something had been enjoying a good meal. Yesterday we found a dead screech owl in the basement (and a few pigeon scraps). Has anyone heard of screech owls eating pigeons?
