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.

Happy Birthday to your dear husband, Sherry.
I hope he had a pleasurable day filled with sunshine and love.

Nice picture of Cooper's Hawk. I don't think I've seen one before.

Good old Doctor Seuss - love those books!

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!

I think that to see Cooper's Hawk's hunting is interesting.I'd like to see it.
I knew American family is the same as japanese family from "He has enjoyed being remembered".
Happy birthday to your 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.

I know they eat my sparrows, but I love Cooper's Hawks! Magestic!

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.
