Two odd things happened on Sunday. The morning was relatively warm and decidely sunny, and suddenly in the middle of the afternoon an angry snow cloud descended on the city to remind us that it was still winter, which was really sneaky, because as in so many places we hadn't had much wintery weather so far.
And then a small hawk landed on a wire and just sat there. It's so tiny it has to be a Sharp-shinned Hawk, the much less often seen of the Coooper's-Sharpie Accipiteran pair.
Even he's surprised to find himself there.
Now he's puffing himself up to look scary. Cute. Eventually two crows chased him away, but only after silently staring at him for a while. They too were puzzled about tiny-hawk on a wire.
