These birds are a real challenge to shoot for a number of reasons, but I like a challenge!


Immature Cooper's Hawk in the Rain - Backyard Feb 2018

Credit to Shirley for noticing this guy!  He's looking for an easy lunch on a rainy day I'm sure.  Fortunately I had the big lens & camera mounted on the tripod and positioned just outside the backdoor... I was able to quietly slip out and snap some pics!

Coopers Hawk, Backyard, April 2017

Gil advises Notice how long and slim the bird is, especially the tail.  Cooper’s Hawks are accipiters, which eat other birds almost exclusively. They like to hang out at bird feeders and pick off the doves.
