Eurasian Sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus) User: StuW  (See all photos - 17)
United Kingdom (England) This young Sparrow hawk took a starling from my feeder and spent the next hour devouring it on the ground. It was very tame and let me get to around 3 ft from it.

Sue, although it was slightly wary, it allowed me to approach very close. I also think it being a juvenile helped.
