Question Sparrowhawk behaviour

Has anyone else seen a sparrowhawk fly round a corner from the bird feeders so he was out of site, then walk round the corner tucked into the wall as stealthily as possible, keeping as hidden as much as possible. Then he ambushed the birds that land on the feeder. He was successful and managed to catch a great tit fledgling. I never thought they would do that.

Well, that’s sneaky ��.
Evolution in progress.
What next?
Pops head round corner, then pulls out Colt 45?
