Ivins, Utah. Dec. 3, 2013. This guy seems to have catching sparrows down pat. I have watched him a few times and he lands on the railing or tree branch, listens for a while, then he flies down to the ground and chases the sparrows that are hiding in the bushes below. He catches them while on foot, not while flying. When he catches one he flies back up to the railing or tree branch.
