Woo-hoo! I just finish posting about one new yard bird, go look at my feeders, and I see another new yard bird! Except this time, the new yard bird was eating one of my other birds! This is a Sharp-shinned Hawk. They’re pretty well known for targeting birds that come to feeders. Smart fellows. There have been multiple times where I’ve been watching feeders or small groups of birds, and one of these guys has swooped in and caught one of the.
Very cool birds! I’m glad my wife wasn’t around to see the carnage though…don’t think she’d have appreciated the Sharp-shinned Hawk like I did.
