I had two days where the Sharp-shinned Hawk was especially active.

The bird worked on the ground near the peanut and suet feeders.
Shortly after this shot, it swung around and snagged a Junco.

Here it is perched on the side of a whiskey barrel.

There is a small conifer planted in the whiskey barrel and the hawk is small enough that it can perch atop the conifer.

A pretty bird and a fierce predator.
I guess all predators are fierce by nature!

Your header is perfect for this month! Great pictures of the hawk. It's amazing what he can catch considering his size. Hope he leaves the hummers alone.

That hawk - those eyes! Yikes!

I have to tell you as I type this I hear another returning spring bird outside though I couldn't tell you what type it is!

so many really cute pieces in the header... I have pitifully few Valentine or Love pieces... I would be making them for myself... my husband is a grump! My heart is sad about the Junco... tho I know it is a part of the ebb and flow of nature... still doesn't help...
