Halcyon smyrnensis in my backyard

A Halcyon smyrnensis flew into my backyard. While resting, a cat stormed on him and caught it between his gaws. After playing with it for a few minutes, the cat let go and the bird run away. The cat went to sleep, and the bird, terrified, waited (perhaps it was wounded... I don't know...). I took the chance to grab a few photos. We put a deep plate with water for the poor bird. Chased away the cat and went to bed. We hope that the bird will get over the trauma and move on before another bird takes a shot...
