    [​IMG] A sparrow hawk would be no threat, but my gut tell that more likely it is a Cooper's hawk - bad news if that is the case.

    Out to pasture
    Is it possible to persuade him to leave- by waving a broom at him?

    Welcome to BYC glad you've joined us.
    I would post on pic on the preditors and pests part of the forum to confirm the type if hawk and take it from there.
    Hope things work out for you.
