Juvenile Cooper's Hawk


Found this lovely raptor just outside my house. I was actually sitting in the living room near a big window and saw white flakes floating down out of the sky. At first I though SNOW! - but it's not cold enough, so I quickly realized they were way too big to be snow flakes and were in fact feathers. I found this lovely juvenile hawk having a meal of pigeon in a tree. I was super lucky -  the sun broke out of the clouds and the bird gave me a perfect pose for a few seconds.

thanks - I feel so lucky. I was going to go down to a park for a while today, but staying home probably got me something way better.

Wow that's quite a shot!

I saw a puff of feathers yesterday as well, but it was the neighbor's cat with a pigeon rather than a hawk! :D
