I love my hawks; though, I prefer not to watch them eat.  They need to live, too!

    I do hate nature in the raw and prefer to sugar coat the uglier sides of life. But your hawk is a handsome noble creature and you continue to capture his eternal beauty. 🙂

    • Yeah, tooth and claw is not really my cup of tea, but I do love these majestic creatures. Funny, I still have a folder in my pictures of a night heron eating a gosling. I can’t look at it unless I put my fingers up to cover the carnage, but I can’t bring myself to get rid of it because it is a magnificent bird.

    he is a beauty!

  3. Very nice. My latest Cooper’s photos are pretty icky. The bird was backlit. But at least they were recognizable. It was not the inexperienced young’n we had earlier.

    I love these photos, looks like you’ve captured his personality – a bit of a thinker when he’s not scouting for prey!

  5. So were there House sparrows below the bird was peering at in the first shot?

  6. Glad you caught the bird. They often don’t sit for long! It looks like a Cooper’s? I have a hard time telling the difference between them and the Sharp-shinned. Cornell has a great article on the difference. http://www.birds.cornell.edu/pfw/AboutBirdsandFeeding/accipiterIDtable.htm

    Nice capture!!! 😀

    • For some reason they dally a bit here. My computer desk window is the only window I clean . . . regularly. 🙂 So I am at the ready as I work at my computer, but even still, they take plenty of time to scout the territory.

  7. hello, ms. lily… i have a suspicion that he has come to love those photo sessions, hehe 😉

I would love to hear from you!
