Today, Danielle relayed an interesting experience. She was eating lunch when our Labrador suddenly started barking at the backyard window. She looked out and saw a bird take off which she first thought to be a large dove. Then, she looked in the tree and saw this Sharp-Shinned Hawk. It might be a second year immature bird based on the eye-color which is supposed to transition from yellow to red. She got a few quick shots with the Canon SX-50 before the hawk then flew down towards the window. She did not see it come back up, so in a few minutes, she went outside to see if it had gotten hurt or had caught something. She did not see the hawk but a few sparrows took advantage to fly out from behind the flower pots behind which they had been hiding.
