I usually don't post so many bird shots in a week but I have gotten some good and different ones lately so I wanted to share.  This was an unusual visitor to my yard a few days ago.  This is a Sharp-shinned Hawk and I think it had one of my little visitors in it's talons unfortunately.  That's the circle of life I guess.  I captured this with only my portrait lens on because I just shot with what was on the camera so I wouldn't miss it.  I knew it wouldn't stay long and I was right as I only had time to get off a couple of shots.  This one is quite heavily cropped put I must say my new camera's sensor is very impressive at allowing for that and the image to still be so sharp and good quality.  I love the red eyes on this hawk.
