Cooper’s Hawk


Well this is something I don’t see every day, a Cooper’s Hawk!

There wasn’t much bird activity on the day that this hawk made an appearance. The lack of birds is usually a sign that a predator of some sort is nearby. I resigned myself to the fact that there wasn’t going to be much to photograph after the hawk zoomed away, but hey, I’d gotten a shot of a Cooper’s hawk!!

    1. It was definitely a lucky moment! I was only able to get a few shots and this is the only one that caught, ‘the look’.

      1. A lot of the little sparrow types, robins, starlings, warblers, juncos (although some of them stay behind to winter here). I know some of the robins, juncos, towhees,and chickadees stay here over the winter. Even the rare hummingbird stays for the winter. I know because I feel so sorry for them at the harshest times.

        1. I can’t believe a hummingbird can make it. The juncos show up here in winter, so maybe I get some of yours!
