A Hawk flyby


It has been cold and we have had some snow this week here in Ohio. I took a drive on Monday evening, accompanied by my camera. Not far from town I saw what looked like two birds in a scuffle. As it turns out, one of them was this young Broad-Winged Hawk. I suspect the other one was a Field Sparrow or Winter Wren. There was a lot of activity with smaller birds trying to feed, and I assume the hawk tried to pick one of them off. I caught this photo as the hawk was retreating.
