    Cooper's hawk

    Didn't have to go too far to photograph this one. I was in fact swimming in my pool in my backyard when this hawk popped onto my fence about 20 feet away, hoping to score one of the birds at my feeders. He's been a backyard regular for years now. In the summer, I often bring my camera and...

    This Cooper Hawk was accommodating to let me take a few shots. Good thing because not many shots worked in my favor. Love his red eyes.

    Yesterday while sitting on my back porch I heard a Gray Squirrel give the warning yell. I looked around for a few minutes and saw nothing and then a moment later he showed up. Ready to pounce on something. An unexpected visitor.

    A Hawk Giving The Evil Eye

    This guy was in my backyard today with a kill, a Starling. He comes around more or less on a regular basis to check out the feeders. Here he is giving me the evil eye for disturbing him at his lunch.

    You Promised Me A Fat Starling If I Would Pose For You

    A juvenile Cooper's Hawk. I am resorting my catalog and finding favorite images I had forgotten I had. This is and old one from long ago. He was sitting on the bird feeder stand when I pulled up in my car. When I stepped out of my car I saw him for the first time, about 30 feet away. I...

    Spit !!!! - Why Do Starlings Have to Have Feathers Anyway!

    Bet you didn't know a Cooper's Hawk could spit. This guy visits my feeders on a regular basis. He flew up and landed on the rail of our ramp, while we were having lunch. He sat there for about 5 seconds, then swooped down and caught a Starling. I grabbed my camera and got a few pictures. I...

    2 Cooper Juveniles in Bird Bath

    Hi Folks; Webshots have finally bit the dust and are reopening as "Smiles". I'm not impressed so I downloaded my over 3000 images and will post some here. The 2 Coopers shown here were born in the same nest in 2004 as the other one I posted today. These 2 were about 3 weeks old and not...
