Imagine my surprise when I got another visit from the Cooper’s hawk Saturday afternoon!
He came swooshing through the shrubs and landed right in front of me on the birdbath. There he sat still for a few moments, then hopped onto the ground behind the beauty berry bush. The Cooper’s hawk reappeared moments later and perched himself on top of one of the bird feeder poles. He looked around, listened and sat still long enough for me to get a good look at him.
Then he ruffled his feathers, lurched forward and disappeared into the woods.
What an unexpected treat!
