Coopers Hawk- Ottawa, Ontario by 

“Among the bird world’s most skilful flyers, Cooper’s Hawks are common woodland hawks that tear through cluttered tree canopies in high speed pursuit of other birds. You’re most likely to see one prowling above a forest edge or field using just a few stiff wingbeats followed by a glide. With their smaller lookalike, the Sharp-shinned Hawk, Cooper’s Hawks make for famously tricky identifications. Both species are sometimes unwanted guests at bird feeders, looking for an easy meal (but not one of sunflower seeds).” Cornell University

    Wow….great work! You must be very fast in response to get this picture!

  • Actually Cooper’s Hawks are fairly tame and don’t always fly away whne they are occupied with doing something

    Beautiful Michael. He is standing in water but does he have prey in his grip.

  • It was bathing, it had just finished a prey and I guess was cleaning up
