A Cooper’s Hawk (Accipiter cooprii) juvenile, stopped in for lunch today, but all the lunch made a hasty retreat and it went away hungry!



The local Sharp-shinned Hawk (Accipiter striatus) likes to come into our yard, and sit on the old bench for awhile. Meantime, scaring the bejammers out of all the little birds!

In for Lunch


Here’s my buddy, the Sharp-shinned Hawk (Accipiter striatus). It almost got lucky this lunchtime, but went away empty taloned! It’s nothing if not determined!

The Boss


Here’s the boss! It keeps all the little birds on their toes! A Sharp-shinned Hawk (Accipiter striatus) It drops into the yard every day or so to see what it can catch for lunch. It went hungry today!

Those Eyes


A Sharp-shinned Hawk, dropped in at lunchtime and thankfully scared all the little birds away.  I’m happy to see it but don’t want it using our feeders as a buffet!  No luck this time buddy!



A portrait of a Sharp-shinned Hawk (Accepiter striatus). This one dropped in on out yard just at dusk today. One last look around. Unfortunately it was out of luck. All the little birds had gone to roost!

Looking for Lunch


Here’s my friend the Sharp-shinned Hawk.  It dropped by for lunch, but went hungary as all the other birds made a speedy exit when it appeared!  Who can blame them, they didn’t want to end up on the Menu!
