Cooper's Hawk

Cooper's Hawk came hunting.

He perched on the deck for awhile.
We watched him watch us.
It is my husband's birthday.
We are celebrating in a quiet way.

We are having a simple supper.


He has enjoyed cards and gifts.
He has enjoyed being remembered.

What a magnificent bird and your photos are wonderful. We had a hawk visit our garden once and eat a sparrow in front of us. I was horrified at first and then ended up respecting him as there was no waste. It wasn't sport but hunger.

Happy birthday to your husband.

The feathers on that bird are a visual feast, lovely photography, you must have endless patience, all I capture is a blur if I photograph birds or butterflies!
I am glad to see you husband is obviously a kindred spirit who enjoys the quirky things of life, happy birthday husband!

Hi Sherry,

Glad hubby enjoyed his special day.
I am sure you spoilt him :)

Cooper's Hawk is wonderful.....
I would love to be able to get a photograph of the sparrowhawk that spends time in the copse. It is just so frustrating. One day, maybe.

Happy Birthday Wishes to your husband!
What a wonderful pose Coopers Hawk struck for you ... I think they are so magestic, but due to the one we have circling our garden, we've lost so many Sparrows.

I very much enjoyed seeing the pictures of birds. I attempted to get a picture of a brown hawk today but he kept flying away. I need a better camera :-) You must live in a rural and beautiful area.

he Christian Louboutin Sandals answer is yes Christian Louboutin pumps. French fashion house has confirmed the Brit model as the face of their Boy Chanel handbag collection Miu Miu Handbags. [Karl Lagerfeld] a crush with this unique, charismatic dude, who's both one and musician, during the photo shoot several months ago, Chanel told WWD Chanel Handbags. This previously unforeseen alliance finally became self-evident Juicy Couture Handbags. Alice Dellal represents the most perfect incarnation off which is unique in regards to the Boy Chanel handbag collection, which strives [to be] not even close conformist notions of femininity Jimmy Choo Handbags.
Yep, Dellal is anything but conventional. And even her trademark punk-rock uniform, the petite 24-year-old is actually a drummer while in the band Thrush Metal and will remain found larking for the streets based in london with Pixie Geldof. Shes far from blonde bombshell Blake Lively, whos the existing face of Chanels Mademoiselle range, but Lagerfeld is acknowledged for his eclectic taste, previously casting Lily Allen for the Cocoon bag range during the past year. Even greater, Alice's androgyny will work brilliantly with the 'Boy' collection. How refreshing.
