Hawk on the Wing!

Just now I was standing at the kitchen window, putting away dishes, and watching a few dozen sparrows mob the birdfeeder hanging in a tree about ten feet away. Suddenly a redtail hawk swooped down through the flock, flying sideways -- whoosh, right in front of the window! -- then up into a walnut tree farther out in the yard. He missed, though.

I find it amusing that the hawks seem to think I've put out feeding stations for them, because the birdfeeders attract flocks of tasty tidbits. I've only seen the hawks in action a few times, but it's always exciting.
