Blustery Day ☼ Backyard Sharp-shinned Hawk

It was a dark and stormy night...

Nah, not really. It was a rainy afternoon and the wind blew a disheveled Sharp-shinned Hawk into my backyard! The poor guy took a few minutes to get his bearings and then he was back off to brave the weather and go hunting...

(Please excuse the quality of these photos--they were taken through my tinted sliding glass door!)

Luckily, I managed to get some video, too! The wind was really blowing his feathers around, and the yelp he let out at the end shows just how irritated he was by the weather!
