I was quietly eating my breakfast yesterday morning about dawn when there was a thump on the window.  Another confused Chickadee I assumed and almost didn’t bother going out to look, but being a worrying sort of a chap I decided I’d better go and see if some resuscitation was required … what I found was this.  The Sharpie had clearly made a pass at the Woodpecker who had been snacking on one of our feeders, spooked the bird and caused it to try to escape via our dining room and then taken advantage of the packed meal so pleasantly offered.

A shame about the Woodpecker, but even a hawk’s got to make a living.
