April 12th, 2005 -- Taken in Kelowna, British Columbia, Don Winkler (the photographer) reports that, "This little hawk flew into the chicken house chasing smaller birds and couldn't find the exit. It seemed quite content to perch amongst the chickens; and they didn't mind either!" He adds that, in this photo, his neighbour was using a stick to open the window and let the hawk out.
