Probably not a month goes by when we don’t see a Collared Sparrowhawk in our garden or overhead. Usually they’re perched quietly in foliage or in full view as one was yesterday morning, a very dinky male, sitting still as stone on a shady section of fence. As is often the case, this little rooster was oh so pale. We’re reminded of Pale Male, one of the Red-tailed Hawks featured in Red-tails In Love.
