Cooper’s Hawk

010o5799

While walking through a thickly tangled part of the bosque, I came face to face with a Cooper’s Hawk. He sat very still, like maybe I wouldn’t notice him, but when he heard my shutter click, he flew off before I could get another shot.

  1. Hi, Tim. I hadn’t seen a Cooper’s up here for some time. But with the snow, I again started keeping the feeders filled for the little birds. Yesterday morning a Cooper’s settles into a little hollow, a choice spot to survey happenings in the yard. Suddenly, whoosh, it swooped past the kitchen window, grabbed breakfast, and was gone. I’ll fill the feeders again this weekend…
    They are magnificent birds!
