Today's Photos - Sharp-shinned Hawk...

Today a Sharp-shinned Hawk (Accipiter striatus), decided to hang out in the backyard all day long. Despite the rain and wind, I decided to practice digiscoping and videoscoping him as he hunted House Sparrows. Here are a few shots - all digiscoped. Some softer than I would have liked, but the wind and obstructions did not make it easy. I'll post a video of him later.
