Looks like a N Goshawk to me
There is at least some chance it may stay in the area all winter as there will 
be an ample supply of pigeons for food

Nashville, TN Goshawk

I have been reading this list for several years now, but this is my first post. 
 I observed what I believe was an immature Goshawk catch a pigeon in 
flight yesterday at 1515 hours right next to the Titans football stadium.  The 
hawk took the pigeon to the ground within the construction site next to the 
pedestrian bridge.  It then flew onto the construction fence, where it rested 
for a few minutes.  It then made several short flights until it ended up next 
an air vent at the bottom of the stadium where it began eating the pigeon 
 The pigeon continued to flap around and try to get away until his head was 
finally severed.  I was able to take several pictures of the bird and will 
attach a couple for confirmation of the identity.
