But not one I particularly want hanging around. I was taking a picture through the window in the door of a couple of jays on one of the feeders. All of a sudden they let out a screech and flew off along with some small birds on the ground. I thought it strange but on taking the camera away from my face, I saw a larger bird on the ground. Thinking it was a grouse I threw my coat and boots on and went out figuring I could get quite close as you can almost pick them up they are so friendly. The chickens were out and fairly close to this bird. I started walking towards it and saw that it was a Hawk. It flew up in a tree as I got closer so I only managed one half way decent shot of the bird. Absolutely gorgeous! It hung around for quite some time so I had to get the chickens into their greenhouse area by coaxing them with treats. It eventually flew off to some trees across the road. I have to say that it was one beautiful flyer. I've looked up my bird books and the best I can come up with is that it's maybe a Sharp Shinned Hawk. If anyone knows for sure, please let me know.
