Cooper's Hawk (Accipiter cooperii) hunting rock pigeons
This hawk is sitting in a tall tree overlooking a barn inhabited by pigeons. It was pretty well hidden in the tree branches and so engrossed watching its prey that it let me creep in quite close. Unfortunately, there were so many branches in the way I had trouble getting a clear view until...
A bit miffed
it flew to another branch, where it landed for a few seconds and then flew away. This hawk haunts this area often finding it a great fast food joint.
