A Coopers Hawk (identified by the rounded tail feathers).
Nov 1, 2012

This morning, like most mornings, I looked out to see the birds at the feeders and had to laugh as I often do with their squabbling over a position on the feeder. A bit later I put out the peanuts for the Blue Jays knowing they be coming in for their morning feed. The peanuts were still there some ten minutes later and all the birds were gone. This means a hawk or two is in the area and the birds are hiding not wanting to be the next meal.

And suddenly there it was. It had landed in the open area of some bushes which is unusual as they always choose one of the trees and are partially obscured by branches. Grabbed the FZ 28 turned it on and was greeted by the flashing red of a low battery. Managed two shots. And here they are. Very overcast lighting and I did about the best I could. Hope you enjoy nevertheless.
