Young Coop

Friends, This hatch year Cooper’s Hawk is peeking around the corner to see where that clicking is coming from (my camera).  I love the various poses of these beautiful birds, especially the youngsters.  On a sad note, only twenty percent of these first year birds will live to finish the migration north next spring.  The feather ruff around his head and his size mark him as a Cooper and his yellow eye says hatch year bird.  til Tomorrow MJ
