I just observed the same activity 10” ago with a sharp-shinned and DE junco. The sharpie chased the junco into a corner on my deck and into the window. It picked the junco off the snow and flew off. I was sitting in a chair by the window right in front of this and it certainly surprised me to suddenly see all this drama. I have markers on my deck windows and bird loss is extremely rare.. i have one feeder on my deck and may move it..
