|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This was taken in my back yard, in the inner-city of Schenectady, a few days after a major ice storm in February. The pile of brush and branches, from the clean-up, that the hawk is looking at, has about 50 or so sparrows in it. Just before I snapped this picture, it was on the other side of the fence, trying to claw at the other birds through the chain link. I was only about 12 feet away when i snapped this pic. He/she looked at me a couple times, but was more interested in what was in the brush pile. It eventually flew away, empty clawed.|

Great capture Ed,
Wonderful detail and captured in a natural hunting pose. I'm not sure what kind of hawk this is, but it resembles a juvenile Coopers Hawk. Well done!!
Welcome to Treknature, nice capture, keep shooting.
