Cooper hawk juvenile
After a long day at work I came home to watch the hummingbirds when a hawk landed under my side bird feeder. I quickly got up to see it and it flew into the tree. I was able to get one shot of it - first photo. I came inside thinking that was very cool when I saw the Cooper Hawk land under the bird feeder again. He had supper in mind. I went back out and looked in the tree and down he jumped on the ground and started to walk around. Shot number 2. My husband and I watched him for a couple of minutes when he flew ahead and grabbed something from the grass with his talons and flew away. What a beautiful bird.
