Yesterday we had a juvenile Coopers hawk hunting (unsuccessfully) at our feeders. He had not honed his craft and positioned himself poorly (he/she, that is). We have a mature sharpie that is much more polished (posted about him before). Just a few minutes ago we had a kestrel strike, followed by a war with several crows, who briefly ran off the perp. and tried to abscond with the meal. The kestrel rallied and dove back in and airlifted his dinner much to the dismay of the thugs! We are at 30 Torok Road in Groton.
