More Sparrowhawk Pictures

We think this is an adult male who followed a small bird into the garage, then couldn't get out. Harry next door came to his rescue and held him while I rushed for the camera! We are kicking ourselves that we didn't take a small video clip too. He was extremely calm and just looked at us with that piercing gaze without trying to struggle or bite.

  3. Breathtaking shots. In my wildest dreams, I couldn't imagine handling that majestic bird. Can't believe he didn't even try to bite.
