Victorian Sparrow Hawks with chicks. I am afraid that this hawk has many enemies but few friends. Those who take an interest in falconry often put in a plea for that still greater robber, the Peregrine, but I have yet heard a word spoken in defence of the poor Sparrowhawk.
That he is a bad character, no one who has taken the trouble to watch his habits can deny. Gamekeepers often wrongly accuse certain birds of carrying off young Pheasants from the coops during the breeding season, but with regard to this hawk, I always think that he fully deserves the bad name to which he has acquired.
This bird would I should imagine soon become a very numerous species were it not so universally killed down. It is seldom that a brood is allowed to fly on any ground where game is preserved, except where they owe their safety to the denseness of the timber or laziness of the Gamekeepers and trappers.
The Sparrowhawk is found all over the county, being the most numerous in the neighbourhood of large woods. It generally makes use of the nest of a the Crow or some other large bird in which to rear its ravenous brood. I have noticed that in the Highlands that the young birds were frequently fed upon the Meadow Pipit, which is one of the most commonest small birds in that part of the Country during the Summer Months. The specimens in the case both old and young were obtained near Lairg, in Sutherland, in June 1868. The nest had been built and occupied by a pair of Grey Crows the previous year.
