Was puttering around out in the shed yesterday and on my way back in the house I saw this beauty sitting on top of a bird box staking out the backyard. I know these guys are around but it’s not often that I get to see them this close. Was happy he didn’t fly off while running to get my camera. He allowed me about a dozen shots before he said enough of that. I believe he’s a young Cooper’s Hawk. Click on pictures to enlarge the photos.
