  1. They are certainly very speckled and cute. Some people are so knowledgeable about birds, but sadly I’m not one of them even though my maiden name is Birdsong! πŸ™‚

  2. They certainly look like sparrowhawks – as for the rest, did you catch their accents?
    Anyway, when in doubt all sparrow types are LBJs (Little Brown Jobs) so these could be BBJs.

  3. I’m not a bird watcher nor do we have birds here that look like them. I read on one of the other comments that they are the American Sparrowhawk??? I think I’ll wikipedia that. It sounds like they might be endangered. Anyway, nice shot of them.

  4. Lovely capture! I spotted an Indian sparrowhawk in the mango tree outside my window and it looked quite similar! A little grayer and smaller, but the speckles are near identical! The parakeets that were living there all this while have been missing ever since πŸ™‚

  5. Oh I forget, the most recent comments go to the top here. So I’ll change the phrase in the *below* statement from “above comment” to ‘below comment’ πŸ™‚

  6. Thanks for your endorsement and confidence in your above comment Sylvia. πŸ™‚
    I can give you a 100% positive ID that they are indeed speckled birds. πŸ˜›
    But Sparrow hawk sounds good too. πŸ˜€

    • Hahaha. Well it’s nice to know that we’re in agreement, Phil. πŸ˜€ Thanks for your expert opinion. They will forever more be sparrowhawks in my book, until proved otherwise. πŸ˜›

  7. Looks like the mystery is solved before I arrived. Giving the location where they were shot might have helped. (Or did I miss something?)
