Nice video Glenn. This appears to be a young Cooper's hawk (call, tail feather shape and light terminal band, breast feather streaking shape and color, head shape).

Hey Joyce, I have the same thing going on here. Every time I fill the feeder I
realize I am setting up a siskin to be a meal. Oh well they all have to eat.

My feeders are just to the left out of camera sight.

on your fence staring at one's feeders. I knew a predator had been in the
area because there are Pine Siskin feathers on the ground. There have been
more than 50 siskins clamoring over the feeders during the recent snows. The
Sharpie hangs out in the tall deciduous trees and can make a beeline to
several feeders in the area. This is in the Redmond Ridge area near the top
of Novelty Hill Road.
