A juvenile Red-tail hawk in the yard this morning looking really fierce.  Additionally, Eastern Bluebird courtship started today (later than usual due to the cold weather). I cleaned out the birdhouses on my Bluebird Trail this morning. Also a pair of Hairy Woodpeckers searching for spiders and eating raw peanuts this morning. The Hairy Woodpecker appears to be banded:

Red Shoulders rarely take birds; they sen to prefer frogs, crawfish, and stream inhabitants (like water snakes). When things are frozen they seem to turn to voles, mice, etc. – they seem to leave the feeding songbirds alone. Infact, they are busy feeding very near to him. If a Coopers Hawk is in the area, there are no songbirds to be seen. These photos taken through a window with double-pane glass:
