My wonderful female Coopers Hawk has returned to her favorite place for spawning an attack 0n my feeder birds.
I don't see her much in the summer months. I assume she is busy raising a family. But, she will come to this spot all winter, sit for a long period of time until she becomes unnoticed by the other birds, then .... well, you know the rest of the story. I do feel ambivalent about this routine. She is, after all, after my birds, but, she has to eat to survive and she is a magnificent hunter ...
I love this bird ... :)
Disclaimer ... no, that is not really me. I only wish I looked half that good, but you get the idea, right?
