Sharp-shinned hawk
© Liz Stanley

Bloomington, MN

I looked out the back patio door and saw this toward the back of the yard. Turned out it caught my little yellow-bellied sapsucker. :( Several birding experts have weighed in and the consensus is that this is a sharp-shinned hawk rather than a Cooper's, so that's what I'm going with!
