Backyard Cooper's Hawk

For the last week or so a Cooper's Hawk has been hanging around.  One minute all the birds are active and feeding at the feeders and the next minute it is dead quiet. Today I looked and the window and saw this. He was looking below the feeder in the shrubs for Juncos. I don't think he got lucky this time.

Yesterday I kept hearing a call from the neighbor's apple tree.  It took me a while to locate the sound I was hearing and it was fun to learn it was the hawk. Listen for an Anna's Hummingbird on the recording too.

  1. Wow! I completely hear why you thought Sapsucker. The Coops I've heard have been more rapid fire, this one was more thoughtful. Nice to know!
