During the winter, a Cooper’s Hawk always comes to my backyard to hang out in the Crabapple tree and scare my birds away. Sometimes, it gets dinner. This particular time, I was able to sneak up on it and get some good although graphic photos of him tearing apart a Dark Eyed Junco. When it was done, it flew onto the fence and turned it’s head completely around!




What’s For Dinner?

Hungry in the winter!

    Wonderful capture. I’m always amazed at how they pretty much consume everything, even the entire legs. I have watched the same scenario unfold with Sharp-shinned Hawks in my yard.
