The Sharp-shinned Hawk is the smallest accipiter or bird hawk. Its an elegant bird with swift highly maneuverable flight suited to catching birds on the ground or through the woods.
It is an unwelcome visitor at our place. Its hunting methods are barbaric. It eats its prey alive and will leave partly eaten but living birds behind as it moves on. Yuck!
The population of this species has been increasing probably due to bird concentrations around winter bird feeding stations.
