Is it possibly a Merlin? Not sure if you have them up there. It looks like it might have the white "eyebrow".


Providing wild fur to the industry at below the cost of production for over 50 years.

Mostly carbon neutral since 1948.

I was thinking it was a sharp by the tail marking there all nice birds to watch hunting. Very agile in flight.

I thought Cooper's but not sure. Cooper's eat morning doves at my feeder all the time. They're really agile flying threw the trees

Keep him around it will save you a lot of money buying bird seed. Predators, crawl, walk, run, swim and fly.

We've had a Sharp-shinned Hawk hanging around. He will stay healthy if he leaves the Cardinals alone.

This morning we also had a Ring-necked Dove show up. Thought at first it was a huge Mourning Dove.

Nothing kills more wildlife than the common house cat and you feed them and let them in your house. The hawk is just trying to make it to the next day the best way they can.
