The sharp shinned hawk made an appearance the other day and the birds scattered except for this little guy. It happened to be on that birch about six feet away from me and it just froze in place. It stayed still for about 3 or 4 minutes and I was able to get a bunch of pics. The next day the hawk showed up again and landed ten feet away from me, three feet off the ground in the bright sun. It was to the side so by the time I swung my camera around it saw me and flew off so I didn't get a photo. It was the first time I actually got a good view of it, before it was always just glimpses. One of these days I'll be successful in getting a good photo.
