This juvenile Sharp-shinned Hawk was perched for a brief moment in a low tree across the street from my home on Saturday morning, March 7, 2015. I saw the small hawk jump up to perch, stay put a few seconds, and then streak off in a blur of pure speed!
This is that third of the hawks I have recently seen around here (maybe the other two are its parents?). I hope it can find another nice spot to hunt at with less impact on the songbirds. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
