  1. Shoot it while you can. If it’s like our first measurable snow, it won’t last long. Most of ours melted today. Nice shot of the hawk! Wish I could help with the id, but I’m terrible with raptors. 😦

    • Monk, we’re due for more tomorrow and the next day! I was supposed to take my car in for repair tomorrow. Ah well, snow’s worth it, I suppose.

      I can’t id raptors either. This guy was TINY. There was a huge commotion under a tree and lots of squeaking and shrieking. I thought, from the size of the noise-makers, that it was a squirrel fight. Got close enough to take this picture, then the bird flew off with his now-dead prey. It was nearly as big as he was! And I think the prey is a junco or a starling. Not a big raptor, so probably a sharp-shinned hawk. They’re about 11″, according to the Sibley.
