An Unwelcome visitor?

This fine looking fellow pitched up in the back garden this morning. Understandably, most all the smaller birds made a quick exit, and he just sat there for five minutes or more, doubtless feeling hungry, cheated, and not tempted by the peanuts & seeds which attract his intended quarry.

After a while, a sparrow, unaware of his presence, flew in and was attacked at once, but managed to escape through some dense branches. Without such luck, the sparrow would have been unceremoniously & calmly eaten on some convenient perch nearby; it's happened before.
