Sharp-shinned Hawk

Accipiter striatus

This species has been found once in the Pribilofs (St. Paul Island) during fall in mid-September, which coincides well with that species’ fall migration window and is the first record for the islands offshore in the Bering Sea. This species is a regular late fall and winter vagrant to the eastern Aleutians and so may turn up in the future with more coverage during the fall season.
