Sharp-shinned Hawks Revisted

Originally posted on Saturday, January 26th, 2008
This Sharp- shinned Hawk appeared at our feeders twice yesterday. Both times it stayed for quite a while and seemed to be in no hurry to leave, then suddenly; it would give chase to a small bird nearby.

My first sighting of a Sharp-shinned Hawk in our feeder area occured this week. This red-eyed, hooked beak, handsome plumaged accipiter perched in our High Bush Cranberry tree and surveyed its surroundings. Not having located any small birds to pursue in the area; after a few moments it left.

Wow...these are some fantastic shots! That red eye really stands out in the third photo but the top 2 have yellow eyes...same bird?? Beautiful photos!

Great photos! We have had a Sharp-Shinned Hawk hang around but nowhere close so I can get a picture. I just see him flying close--almost a swoosh. I can't tell if he has gotten any of our birds at the feeder.
