Cooper’s Hawk, originally uploaded by susanwrites.
Keep in mind, I live in a big, crowded Silicon Valley city. But one of the reasons we put in the native garden was to invite wildlife into our yards. We’ve been pretty sure there was a hawk hanging around the past few months because of the bird feathers we’d find every so often in the yard. Now we know it was likely this beautiful Cooper’s Hawk. I didn’t have my good camera and had to take it through the dirty window but he (she?) stuck around long enough for me to get a few pictures.
Beautiful picture of a beautiful bird! Good catch 🙂
Oh, so VERY cool!
He is majestic!
A gift to you, the gracious hostess.
Very cool! Great shot, crappy camera through the window notwithstanding. : )
Oh wow, he is so beautiful…
Cooper’s hawks are quite bold and hang around backyard bird feeders. We have seen one take out a hapless mourning dove on two different occasions. Even watching, all we saw was a flurry of feathers. The dove never knew what hit him.
I love hawks. Great picture. Thanks!
Oh my gosh–how cool to have him in your yard!
I love the idea of planning to plan. Next time I need to plan, I’m giving it a try.
Sounds like you’ve got a plan you can live with, which is what really matters.
