Sharp Shinned Hawk

My husband and I were standing in the computer room watching several sparrows, finches, and chickadees at the feeder just outside our window when all of a sudden all of them dove for cover, and at the instant, this beautiful hawk came soaring through the tree limbs. He landed momentarily on one of the branches right in front of the window, but I wasn't quick enough with my camera to catch a shot of him. However, when he left, he only went as far as the neighbors back yard, and stayed there for a couple minutes which allowed me to get a few shots of him through the window.

PS: All the sparrows, finches, and chickadees excaped - this time.
