Laura says:

Thanks, Bob! There were 2 chickadees in that bush, just out of the frame. They were chattering away, but they must have known there just wasn’t enough room for the hawk to maneuver enough to grab them.

That’s a mistake a number of birds make when up against a Sharp-shinned.

Laura says:

Lucky for the chickadees, this juvenile hasn’t quite mastered the close quarter hunting skills.

Olivia says:

Beautiful image! I bet he wasn’t enjoying a meal just out of reach, taunting him!(:

Laura says:

Thank you, Olivia! Yes, he left a little disappointed.. course, we did chase him off.
