Winter birds visiting today

We're guessing that wintertime hawks have been in the 'hood for the past several weeks.  Eric spotted one a while back, but the lack of birds at our feeders is an even better sign that they are up in the skies, looking for prey.
This morning, we had quite a gathering of birds .. A flock of Starlings, single pairs of Chickadees, Cardinals and Hairy Woodpeckers, as well as Dark Eyed Juncos, White Throated Sparrows, and a solitary Mockingbird.  Here are a few photos .. (Nikon D7000 with Nikkor 70-200mm VRII lens)

The Starling and the Mockingbird landed on the suet at the same time, gave each other the eyeball in a brief Mexican standoff, then flew away.
