I looked out of the window this morning and there the young Sparrowhawk that's adopted my garden was sitting in the sun overlooking the feeders. Most of the week it's been through the garden twice a day sometimes staying for hours.
I'm sure its not doing the health of other birds any good but it's saving me a fortune in feed although that may be changing as despite alarm calls from Blackbird, Robin, Dunnock and Wren pairs of Blue Tit, Great Tit and Coal Tit remained close by with occasional birds making a dash to the sunflower hearts right below the perched Sparrowhawk
It kept an eye on the birds at the feeder but made no attempt to attack them, possibly well fed or maybe just not so good at hunting yet.
Is that a death stare or a look of frustration / puzzlement?
