A Juvenile Cooper's Hawk
Was not so surprised to see this Cooper's Hawk watching over my feeders.
Habitat
Cooper’s Hawks are forest and woodland birds, but our leafy suburbs seem nearly as good. These lanky hawks are a regular sight in parks, quiet neighborhoods, over fields, at backyard feeders, and even along busy streets if there are trees around.

Marvelous close-up of this handsome youngster. Great looking raptor and a terrific close-up. TFS Windoze!
