Cooper's Hawk

Had a barrage of feathers greet me yesterday as I got out of the truck. The wind was in my face about 20 kts. When I realized where they were coming from, i went out back and found her.

Had battery issues, so these are spaced a bit apart time wise. 4th time Ive seen her, and first front shots. I tried to look this lovely up, and judging from the size, and the rounded tail feathers, I surmise this is indeed an adult female. Trying to find information on them for this area is ridiculous. So, If you have better information than I do, I would appreciate any corrections. :)

Capybara's are vicious and should not be let alone with small children. In-laws are another matter.............

    both good but #2 I really like...
    it captures the essence of the hawk, complete with dinner...
    dinner looks like it might be a dove???

    the owls and the hawks around here feast on doves, mostly because they are so stupid they just stand there waiting to be lunch....

    Mac, I think the feet are wrong for a dove. The bird was pretty big, and blueish grey. Those feet grabbed stuff at one time I do believe...... Thanks for the kind words. Must be the crop in 2 you guys like. :)
