My friend Marty Wright had a platform feeder outside and adjacent to his 
kitchen window.  A House Sparrow was feeding on it when a Gray Squirrel 
hopped up onto the feeder.  This caused the bird to flush off of the feeder 
and smack into the window.  The bird toppled back onto the feeder where the 
squirrel quickly snatched it up in its mouth and dashed off with it.
