Sharp-shinned Hawk

This bird, or raptor as hawks are known, is on the concerned list in some areas, but we still have them here in Central Virginia. We had the first one we've seen on our property visit last week. I saw all the birds fly from the feeder into the bushes below the kitchen window and at the same time I saw a big bird land on the corner of our roof at the deck, no more than 13 feet away from where I was sitting inside. I knew it was a hawk and, after taking a number of photographs, got the field guide to identify it.
