Male Sparrowhawk very common where I live. In fact my uncle had to move his bird table as his resident Sparrowhawk was taking advantage of the little hungry birds who were more interested in the seeds and nuts and not the predators watching from the treetops!!
Sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus). Seen in wooded habitats, suburban and rural.These birds usually nest in conifers.The sparrowhawk is an excellent hunter, it will hide under cover and then launch out at speed to catch prey (predominantly small birds) in its talons whilst it's in flight. #Birds #UK
For my momma, she loved Hawks. We would see who could see the next Hawk sitting on telephone poles while driving. Same kind of thing with kids and Bug-cars. Every day I see a Hawk, which is often, I think of my momma!

The gorgeous, fast and deadly sparrow hawk. In relation to size, some of the largest eyes in the raptor world. Notice the streaks below the eyes. THAT'S where the pro football players learned that a smudge below the eyes reduces glare, improves vision.
