      She had an excellent series of photographs of this bird. It, too, had several spots on the scapulars.

      Good Birding

      Not always a sight that one enjoys but, at 3:30 today, in one of our backyard spruce trees, we had a Sharp-shinned Hawk eating a songbird (species unknown at this time). The bird was intent on its meal and allowed me within twenty feet while talking on the phone and confirming identification with Frank Roy. This bird had seven whitish spots, each side, starting on the top of the scapular and advancing down the side of the back with the last spot on, it appeared from my angle, a greater covert; undertail coverts were long and light.
