Male Sparrowhawk

A handfull of Siskin still hanging around the garden however a male just became a cropper!
I havent seen the ringed male Sparrowhawks for ages, so they have moved on, the female Sparrowhawk seemed to push this fella off territory for a while but today he is back with a vengance.
 
 




 
Just a pity the winter weather returned today so high iso adding to the noisy image
oh well, still a great sequence of shots from the master garden preditor

I get so mixed up with different hawk names around the globe. but that look the same as some that we call different names. This looks like our Cooper's Hawks and the Sparrowhawk is the name given our American kestrels;') Wonderful images, whatever it is!
