Sparrowhawk Chick

Sparrowhawk Chick
Sparrowhawks are small birds of prey.
They're adapted for hunting birds in confined spaces like dense woodland, so gardens are ideal hunting grounds for them.
Adult male sparrowhawks have bluish-grey back and wings and orangey-brown bars on their chest and belly.
Females and young birds have brown back and wings, and brown bars underneath. Sparrowhawks have bright yellow or orangey eyes, long, yellow legs and long talons.
Females are larger than males, as with most birds of prey.
