Sharp-shinned Hawk
Accipiter striatus


sharp-shinned hawk on Antelope island
I was bemoaning the fact that I had hardly seen any birds at Garr Ranch when I saw this bird come gliding
in and landing in a tree about 30 feet from me.  It was this beautiful Sharp-shinned.  Carol Davis 2-16-2016

I can't say that I've ever seen many Sharp-shinned Hawks on Antelope Island, so this was a real
treat for me.  I realized then why the smaller birds were so quiet. After the hawk left, the birds
livened up a little. I saw some Robins, Flickers, Kestrels and some Juncos.  Carol Davis 2-16-2016
