Beautiful Predators

2015-02-28 Sharp-Shinned Hawk

Got a visit today from a local sharp-shinned hawk. We’ve seen this type of hawk around before, but only very rarely. When it does come around, it only perches and observes for a moment and then is off.

While hawks are predators to the birds and small animals that frequent our feeders, they are still very elegant animals to appreciate and are a part of the wildlife who live in our area.
