Came across this old previously ignored photo from my 1D2 days. Wonder why she's called a sapsucker? ;)

I knew there was an assassin the the garden from the feathers near our bird feeders. A few minutes ago I was sitting in this end of the garden after dinner and I just glimpsed a bird flying from a hidden ambush position near the feeders to the far end of the garden and perch for a few seconds. A quick shot with the R5/500mm at iso5000 has given an ID of the suspect - Sparrowhawk. This is a 100% crop of the bird of about 1000px long - the camera handles noise well.
