Winter Backyard Hunter

It’s been snowing lightly all morning and this guy was taking full advantage of the busy backyard feeders. He had the poor little sparrows pinned for ages under the hot tub. He hung around for hours on the fence. I even slowly walked outside so I could get a picture that wasn’t through the window. He didn’t flinch. But I did get some very intense eye contact through the camera. YIKES!! I didn’t do a great job of keeping huge lens steady so they’re not as crisp as I would like.

A few hours later the quail braved the open feeders. Not many in this group only 4. With the hawk out and about I’m surprised they braved it.
