Anyone knows when you feed the song birds occasionally you must deal with the birds of prey, be they small or large. So we have a sharp shinned hawk who cruises our yard periodically. Usually I simply have to open the back door and he’s gone, and most of the time the song birds have scattered before Mr Hawk even gets close. Last weekend I actually had to go have a chat with him regarding his behavior. I’m not sure he was convinced….. Ok, we had some snow and we had quite a bit of fog, so in processing I just went with it.

Per the Cornell Lab of Ornithology
A tiny hawk that appears in a blur of motion—and often disappears in a flurry of feathers. That’s the Sharp-shinned Hawk, the smallest hawk in North America and a daring, acrobatic flier. These raptors have distinctive proportions: long legs, short wings, and very long tails, which they use for navigating their deep-woods homes at top speed in pursuit of songbirds and mice. They’re easiest to spot in fall on their southward migration, or occasionally at winter feeders.
