Yesterday afternoon with many different species of birds working the feeders they all scattered and two or three Blue Jays were giving their alarm calls.  Expected to find either the neighbors cat or another of the more and more frequent visits from a Coopers Hawk but instead found a Sharp-shinned Hark in my neighbors tree.  It then came over and perched in several places in my yard including a Crab Apple tree with a Blue Jay a few feet away.  A new yard bird.

  Birds are all back today.

  I've been jealous of recent high feeder activity reports. Was
beginning to cogitate on probability of predator in my yard, thinking
Cooper's or Sharp-shinned. Just saw adult Red-tail swoop in for prey
and land on ground. It missed. Now, at least I know the lack of
small birds is not due to my selection of available food.
