I've registered for a camera workshop set for the beginning of April. Maybe the hawk will make a comeback and I can snap it.

When we moved into this house almost two (!) years ago, there was a dying euonymus bush that Big D cut and shaped in hopes of reviving it. It worked and it is a haven for the sparrows that visit our feeders. It stands about six feet and has an open area under it of about two and a half feet. Anyway, yesterday as we were having breakfast a Sharp Shinned Hawk flew under the bush and landed on the ground. The garden went silent. He/she glared up into the bush knowing it was packed with birds, but not knowing how to get to them. It hunkered down and jumped onto a lower branch displaying its tail feathers beautifully. I would guess the branches were too dense because it immediately popped out and flew off. You could almost hear the sigh of relief coming from the bush. Ahh, drama in the garden.
