This majestic creature perched in the large maple in our backyard for over an hour this morning, slowly surveying the area for prey. I hope it eventually got a nice big rabbit. My husband, who is reponsible for all the good photos on this blog, took over 100 pictures from a second floor window.
ID help once again, please! Is it a Cooper’s hawk once again? And isn’t it GORGEOUS!
Addendum March 9: I’ve been told that this looks like an immature red-tailed hawk.
