The Female Of The Species

Looking back at my Sparrowhawk images over the years I had noticed they had all been males. To let in the new year yesterday we had our first ever female Sparrowhawk. Not the greatest image with the rain lashing against the kitchen window but it's a nice comparison with the male, a bit bigger, more brown, white eye stripe and generally looks more fierce!

Mrs Sparrowhawk

We did finally escape the house today, more on that next time.
