Juvenile Cooper’s Hawk (Three Photographs)

I was walking along when another photographer pointed out this hawk. I took a quick shot then turned to see if I could get the attention of my wife who was behind me down the path, which did not work out. I turned back for three more shots, before the bird flew out of range. The yellow eyes and the brown on its chest indicates it’s a juvenile Cooper’s Hawk. Given the circumstances, the results are more than I expected.

  9. We’ve got a Cooper’s hawk that stakes out our bird feeders. I thought that I was running a vegan cafe, but he thought otherwise.
