On Nov. 14, I looked out the window just as a Sharp-shinned Hawk flew into shrub by feeder area and captured a House Sparrow. It sat right there on the ground in front of the shrub with the Sparrow in its talons for a minute or two so I was able to take some photos. The Sparrow is hard to see due to the leaves and grass, but it is there. Then the Hawk flew away with its prey, out of my line of sight.
