Cooper's Hawk

Last evening this Cooper’s Hawk stopped by our campsite and used our satellite dish to check out our area for prey.  Cooper’s Hawks feed on other birds, and because of the excellent landscaping of trees and shrubs here in the park, we have a great variety of birds including large numbers of finches, and sparrows that provide ample opportunities. We see him on a regular basis to the point that I think he is a permanent resident, and in fact, I’d like to think it’s the same bird I photographed last year as a juvenile.
