Eric writes: This morning, after filling the feeders, I heard the Blue Jays going crazy. I figured that a hawk had come through but was very surprised to see a Sharp-shinned Hawk on his catch. It turned out that she had caught a European Starling. After making sure she had secured her catch, she started plucking the body feathers. Unfortunately, at this point, something startled her and she flew away with her breakfast.
