This Hawk Is So Tiny!

How tiny is it?

How about this: it preys on hummingbirds! Below is a video from the FatBirder Channel on YouTube. It's a bird called a Tiny Hawk (Accipiter superciliosus) and it is about 8 inches long. To give you an idea, a robin that you would see in your backyard in North America averages about ten inches. Cardinal average about 8.75 inches. To give you an even bigger idea, the hawk in the video below is eating a hummingbird called a white-necked jacobin!

Don't worry, the video is not that gross and is very cool. Be sure to check out the other videos at FatBirders's YouTube Channel.
