Cooper's Hawk | Backyard Birding

A beautiful Cooper's Hawk hunting in my neighborhood gave me an excellent...and almost creepy...pose the other day. Stunning birds!

Beautiful photo, I really enjoy the clarity and all the colors. What a silly pose (:

So nice! I always get fleeting glimpses of these guys, never a decent pose! They flit around between the trees so stealthily. I think the Cooper's has to be my favorite accipiter, at least here in the States. Lovely capture!

Aye, they are pretty secretive raptors for sure. I was pretty amazed to have the chance to photograph one from so close...they are even more beautiful when you can actually see them in all their glory. Thanks for the comment!

Great shot. What lense did you shoot it with?

Canon 7D with EF 100-400mm L @ 400mm. I'll post full EXIF statistics soon on each of my recent bird shots.
