Wildlife in the Winter Garden

A Coopers or Sharp Shinned Hawk, feeding on a small songbird on my back fence. We always have these hawks in the winter as they stalk the bird feeders.
The picture is not very good quality I'm afraid.

Looks like a sharp shinned hawk, we have them down here and they are always after sparrows.

Autumn is a key season for the wildlife garden. Take a few simple steps now and you can help a host of animals to find safe hiding places for the coming winter, and ensure birds and mammals have plenty to eat and a little protection when times are hard.
