We seem to have a small hawk hanging around the front yard where the feeders are. I haven't seen him yet, but have heard him several times. Usually our hawks are Redtail Hawks, but from time to time we do get a Sparrow Hawk come by. They are about the size of a Robin. The Redtails are a lot bigger with wing spans of 5 to 6 ft. As far as I know, we haven't lost any birds to the small hawk yet. Last fall we had a Redtail snatch a squirrel right out of a tree. But they can have all of the squireels they want! :)
