Sharp-shinned Hawk

An adult Sharp-shinned Hawk spent several minutes in the yard this morning, allowing for a bit of video and a few photos out the 2nd floor window. A songbird of some sort was silly enough to land above the hawk which quickly took off after it. I didn't see the outcome.


A brief video of the hawk surveying the yard.


Just prior to take off.


I see very few "Sharpies" in the yard always wishing more would stop by, they're such a colorful raptor.
