A small hawk, the Sharp-shinned Hawk is a regular visitor to bird feeders, where it eats birds, not seed. The male and female show a greater disparity in size than any other American hawk; the female is nearly twice the weight of the male.
•Tail long, barred, and ends with a square tip.
•Wings short and rounded.
•Adults with blue-gray back and wings, reddish barring on underparts.
Adult female somewhat browner on back and less heavily barred than male.
Juveniles brown on back and wings. Underparts with coarse brown streaks. Thin white eyestripe. Underwing white with dark brown barring. Eyes yellow.
