Eurasian sparrowhawk taking a bath - Accipiter nisus After several unsuccessful attempts to catch one of the little birds, flying like a fighter over the feeder, this guy was so kind to take a bath for more than 3 minutes and gave me the opportunity to take a hundred pictures - just a few meters from me. A beautiful bird.

The Eurasian Sparrowhawk is a small bird of prey in the family Accipitridae. Adult male Eurasian Sparrowhawks have bluish grey upperparts and orange-barred underparts; females and juveniles are brown above with brown barring below. The female is up to 25% larger than the male – one of the largest differences between the sexes in any bird species.
