When we returned home this afternoon our backyard was unusually quiet. There were no birds at either of the feeders, or at the birdbath. I decided to check the seed in the feeder, which had ample seed, and as I turned around to return I happened to glance up into my neighbor’s tree and this is what I saw staring back at me. It’s an immature Cooper’s Hawk. Whenever he or his smaller cousin the Sharp-shinnedHawk which I posted about last month shows up, all the little tweeters disappear.
