    HAWKS are predatory birds --- their life one of hunting and killing while DOVES are peaceful and slightly chubby birds, though capable of quite high speed once they get that girth moving.

    unfortunately, Doves taste rather good, both to humans and to Hawks, although a hawk rarely bastes them in a garlic sauce.

    hawks are aggressive
    doves are peaceful

    only one makes good eating !

    LOL
