It looks calm for a wild bird. We had an owl get in the basement once. My wife freaked out when it started screeching. I turned the lights, and it calmed down. Then I grabbed it with welding gloves on and took it out side. I went out spotlighting trees a few more times that summer and it was still around. After an ordeal like that, I would have guessed it would have moved somewhere else.
I have had starlings get in the shop. They will beat them selfs stupid trying to get out the window.

Far from tame. I knew there talons were sharp. I never thought about the beak. I took the little fella out to a tree and he perched.

That's not a baby... it's a full sized Kestrel (sparrow hawk)

Most of the hawks around here are a pain in the butt and have cost me 100s of $ if not more in lost live stock. Never heard of a sparrow hawk. Thanks for the info.

I thought that looked like a kestrel!
Smallest of the hawk family, feed on smaller birds.
They say if all the birds around are laying low and staying under the brush
Look to the tree tops for a keystral!

Cool!

My parents have a bird feeder outside the dining room window (when the black bear leave it alone) and it's kinda funny how you can tell if the hawk is around. Everybody on that feeder just freezes. They don't twitch a feather. Like 10 or so little bird statues.

Good on ya to take it outside, maybe he'll cut down on the English Sparrow (endangered my fanny...) population.

Thanks for the pics and sharing your adventure.

Nice looks birds.
I had an owl fly in and land on the steering wheel of my Kubota a couple of months ago.He was only there a second or two,until he saw me.

Had a bat in the attic but that disappeared. Had a bird in the house that flew back out. The worst was the squirrel in the basement just the other week. We was getting in all the small spots. Finally grabbed him by the tail and body and brought him outside.
