I call these Cooper’s Hawks a ‘gift’ because a couple of friends messaged me after work letting me know where to find them. Up until now I had only seen and photographed juveniles and longed to get pictures of adults. Those eyes are absolutely fascinating to me!
The pics aren’t the greatest as we had pretty heavy overcast skies today making for tough shooting conditions but this is one more raptor I can cross off my list. Scroll down to view the complete series of images.
