Sparrowhawk

The Eurasian Sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus) is a small bird of prey in the family Accipitridae. Adult male Eurasian Sparrowhawks have bluish grey upperparts and orange-barred underparts; females and juveniles are brown above with brown barring below. Hunts by stealth, waiting in hedges or other cover till a bird comes near, then flies out low and fast in pursuit of the chosen prey. Small mammals are also taken on some occasions.
