Artist's Description

In North America this bird declined in numbers in the 1960s and 1970s, probably as a result of the use of DDT and other pesticides. The population of USA and Canada has rebounded since and might even exceed historical numbers today. This is probably due to the combination of the ban on DDT and the proliferation of backyard birdfeeders in North America which create unnaturally reliable and easy prey for all Accipiters. Migratory Sharp-shinned Hawks are one of the most numerous raptors recorded at “hawk watches” across the country. info from Wikipedia
