As usual, it was tricky to do ID analysis with limited views and photos. I now have looked more closely at the 2 accipiters' legs, necks, tails and head size and do think it is possible that the adult bird was a Sharpie, due to a shorter neck, tail, a smaller head and the hints of a more squared-off tail - too bad I didn't get to see if he had skinny legs. Any thoughts on the ID's of the 2 birds? See my post "Sikes Lk Afternoon" in today's digest (Mon.) for the photo link.
