Not a big deal, but they actually use binocular vision (like us with two eyes), to focus on prey or whatever loud person walks their way. They are able to pick up movements from the far sides though as you say, but it's not what they do to focus on an object or scan a field.
Edit: They're not fish lol, raptors have some of the greatest evolutionary traits, eyesight being one of them with up to 3 times more clarity than humans. ^_^

I have seen this often myself. The hawk you see is doing what it does the best, hunting for it`s food. They set on fence posts and light poles looking for small rodents that live in and around the ditches next to the roads. I have seen them catch mice like this many times. Sometimes, they will watch the cars go by before making a strike, and many times they will strike while the car is right there.
