It couldn't be more perfect! Did all the little songbirds scatter in a frenetic chaos when he swooped down? That's what happened HERE the day the Sharp Shinned showed up. Your capture is magnificent. #10477759

Thank you so much Tammy, Linda, Carol, Kay, Michelle and Stephen! I'm happy to report that no songbirds were injured during this period, :), they do scatter quickly, and we have lots of cover for them to hide in! #10478065
