Photos of Sharp-shinned Hawk

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite: Our yard can attract a good number of songbirds in the winter, as I provide multiple feeders and open, heated water. With the songbirds, we also sometimes get visiting Sharp-shinned or Cooper's Hawks.  They're remakably good predators, and it seems more often than not when I see one in the yard, it's successful in catching a sparrow or finch.  Here a little Sharpie sulks on the fence after a not-so-successful hunt in our back yard.
