Green Heron
This morning I saw my first Sharp-shinned Hawk in front of my office.  It was the first I've seen this year.  Unfortunately, though, he flew by so fast I didn't get my camera focused on him before he disappeared behind some trees.  I did, however, get a consolation prize.  Shortly after he disappeared, a Green Heron flew out of the trees and let me photograph him.
