Cooper's Hawk

A few weeks ago we had this Cooper's Hawk that, several times a day, would bring its prey to the yard to eat.  This went on for about a week and then stopped. There was a male and female that would sit in the trees calling to each other also.  Hopefully they nested somewhere nearby.  We still see Cooper's Hawks around, just not eating in the yard.

I like how in the third photo you can see the hawk taking off with a starling in tow.

Enjoy other birding photos at Tuesday's Tweets and Wild Bird Wednesday.

And be sure to check out the Mourning Dove babies.

  1. Very Nice. Coops are pretty common but they are usually hard to photograph. Thank you for participating in this weeks Tuesday Tweets.
