Sharp-shinned Hawk

This Sharp-shinned Hawk spent a few days in a nearby spruce tree creating total chaos for our backyard songbirds.  I have to say, the Blue Jays were picked on the most!  It was fascinating to watch these acrobatic fliers navigate through the dense woods at incredible speeds.  We took the bird feeders down for a few days, so the hawks would move on.  After another day or so, our little feathered friends returned once again!
