When Least Expected

Been trying to catch a hawk in the wild for months.
Looked out the kitchen window and there it was
enjoying a breakfast entree.
Juvenile Cooper's Hawk

Juvenile Streak Pattern: Heavy, bold, reddish streaks on chest and belly.

  1. Hello Gayle, awesome capture of the juvenile Cooper's Hawk! I have one hanging around my yard, he/she flies away when it sees me though. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!

    1. I only had time for one shot. Lucy knew I was up to something and was barking inside the house. The hawk became very attentive and didn't stick around.

  2. Very nice capture of the Cooper's hawk!

  3. Isn't that fun? We had one sitting on the bird feeder last year!

  4. I've been trying for a hawk pic for a long time. I see them, but never in a camera friendly fashion.



Thank you for stopping by and sharing my ventures in photos. I look forward to every comment and especially discovering your Blogs with their wonderful photos, conversation and words of wisdom and encouragement.
Each of you are a blessing to my day.
