Default Hawk calls.

This female coopers hawk came into the garden today. I saw all the birds leave the deck and a second or two later the hawk arrived.

ooooh. Nice shot. Not quite black and white, but the brown and white is interesting.

I kept my kids home from school one day to watch a young coopers trying to get dinner. Coopers are pretty big birds. Nice photos.

Default Must be the season!

I have been watching several different Cooper's Hawks buzz our feeders daily too. We have three different birds that I have been able to individually id. One adult, and two younger ones. It is very fun watching them! We love it when they run around the base of our evergreens in circles looking for birds in the tree! Here are two different ones that have been around. Makes it worth the cost of the bird seed!

I have a secret to tell you... I filled a bird feeder with cheap seed that HOSPs liked and I stuck it by the dead elm. I have other feeders with high quality seed for the natives that HOSPs don't like to eat near a hawthorn by the woodland edge. The location provides good cover for them. The raptors used the snag as a vantage point and dined on the house sparrows instead of the natives. Too bad that elm came down. I miss it.
