Re: Backyard Cooper's Hawk
In reply to Dave Throgmartin, Mar 5, 2013

These are great images. You're lucky to have gotten this close.

I had a Cooper's Hawk in my yard on our gurgling pot fountain twice last week. I got fairly close at 200 mm. I need to add the 1.4 TC and fill the frame more. I can only approach just so close to the fountain without scaring her off. I posted those photos in another forum.

If you put a bird feeder in the yard you may get more chances to shoot the Cooper's Hawk.
