Hi Tweeterdom! Last weekend, my neighbors (in Edmonds) reported the following that may be of interest to some: They were alerted to something going on by an uproar of crows in their front garden. In taking a look, they saw a large hawk on top of and subduing a smaller bird. They got a pretty cool photo of the scene that allowed identification of the aggressor as a Cooper's and the victim as a juvenile Sharp-shinned. Shortly after the photo, the Coop flew off with the Sharpie in its talons, hotly pursued by the crows. If you'd like to see the carnage, email me and I'll forward image. - Jon Houghton, Edmonds
