Sharp-shinned Hawk

I had stopped by a local area to hopefully catch up with a wintering Merlin. Having no luck finding the Merlin until later I was photographing several Robins feeding on fruit from a Hawthorne tree. When all of a sudden chaos broke loose and next thing I know this Sharpie had this Robin pinned to the ground. I was able to get 12 frames off before he was chased off by a Red-tailed Hawk trying to steel its catch.
