The final score is:
Sharp-shinned Hawk 1
Rose-breasted Grosbeak 0

The College Place (near Walla Walla) Rose-breasted Grosbeak (1st winter
bird) was eaten by a Sharpie about 2 pm this afternoon (Saturday Dec 12).
Bloody feathers and mandible are available for inspection. Burping Sharpie
was seen flying north.

If "heard birds" count, how about "eaten birds"?
