Locked On Target
When the hawk's head snapped up and it locked its eyes on something, I checked to see what had its attention. A sparrow had panicked and flown up to the roof. The hawk watched it for a few moments then resumed scanning all directions. It may prefer the fat doves that are often at my feeders, the sparrows small size may have saved it.
