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
