The power of the chickadee! A Cooper's hawk discovered that English house sparrows are tasty little tidbits and has decimated the flock at the beagle club feeder. She is not scared of me and sits about 40 ft up in the ash tree waiting for dinner to arrive. The chickadees flit back and forth to the feeder paying no regard whatsoever to the hawk. I just noticed this today. Scary indeed.
The hawk better watch out! She is going to attack one of the demented Chickadees and it will be all over for the hawk..
