I spotted this character sitting on the bench on my deck. Of course, grab the camera, right?
At first I thought it might be Lady Hawk's mate because he was surely much smaller than Lady Hawk (my female Cooper's Hawk who makes frequent visits to my feeders)
But when he turned around and I saw that wide band and squared off tail, I knew I was probably looking at a female Sharp Shin Hawk( she was good size for a Sharp Shin which is why I assume she is a female)
So sorry for calling you a "he" Lady Sharpie. Glad to see you ... you are beautiful :)
Happy Wild Bird Wednesday everyone!
P.S. Drat those dirty windows make it hard to get a clear picture. But it is too cold to clean them or I would ... really, I would :)
