Hawk visit ...

The redpoll feeder was raided today by this young Sharp-Shinned Hawk, Accipiter striatus. The redpolls scattered in a sudden rush and then there was a flash of movement, followed by this hawk calmly feeding on one of the hapless birds.

It was not the least bit intimidated, letting me come within 10 meters to get this shot.
