A few years ago I came across a wounded Cooper's hawk half frozen in the snow. My guess was that the poor little fellow must've caught its wing in the barbed wire fence. Since all Wildlife shelters were closed I tried my best to handle it until the next day. I carefully wrapped it in a towel and put it in a box. At home I left him in a dark room to rest.
First thing the next day he was already awake and alert. he had such beautiful yellow eyes. I took him to the shelter and they cared for him. They invited me to see his release back into the wild. Such a majestic animal.
You truly captured a magnificent picture :)

What a wonderful thing you did to help that hawk, thank you. So glad you got to see it release.
Thanks

In my back yard! It killed one of the small birds from my feeders, but I do not begrudge it a meal. So beautiful and fierce. :)

Unfortunately it is the only way they can survive.

Yes and no, they have to eat and they only eat live food so...I want them to live too. I assume by feeding the birds who eat seeds i am also feeding the predators.
