The Sharp-shinned Hawk (Accipiter striatus) has been reported as abundant throughout the United States, except in the extreme Southeast (Jones 1979). Although once regarded as a species of special concern in Alabama (Keeler 1976), the sharp-shinned has more recently been reported as fairly common and may be increasing in the State (Alabama Agricultural Extension Service 1984).
