There must be something about the day, about the time Didereaux was posting a great pic of a Sharp Shinned Hawk he saw near his feeders, (in Texas)I noticed one swoop in (in Nova Scotia) and make a serious attempt to grab a squirrel. Unfortunately the squirrel escaped, so he went into a bush after a little bird, which also escaped.

I was just thinking where are all the sharp shunned. Too bad he missed the squirrel - I'd have paid to see that

It sounds like you feel about squirrels the same way I do. Beautiful shots, Ian.

Yes for sure, BK, thanks for commenting. More amazing when they actually catch something though :p

One can always hope, Bob....thanks. The red squirrels had a good reproductive year and really need thinning out, so Im hoping the hawk saves me the trouble.
