This Cooper’s Hawk was known to be in the area and people reported seeing it at various times in different places. We have walked the same paths in this park never knowing what we will see and in the summer we are often surprised. We caught sight of the hawk and my wife and I began taking pictures. People walked on by, birders were ahead and behind us but we were the only ones to see the hawk through dense trees before it took off. The reverse is also true in that we often get told about something worth shooting and by the time we find the site there is nothing there. Such is the nature of the forest, it hides its secrets very well.
