Wow - super shot Tom!
That hawk's got its eye on something. Great image! Are there a lot of deer at Deer Haven Preserve?
Thanks Scott and Scott. Deer Haven does have a few deer- I once asked a member of the park staff if they had thought about that name- in today's world of mega-deer populations, I'm not sure I would name one of my parks "deer haven". But that's just me.-Tom
I agree with Scott. That predator is alert and ready. :)
wow..this is lovely!
Beautiful shot. Last year a pair of cooper's successfully nested in our yard. He rebuilt the nest this year, but I fear something has happened to the female as she is not sitting on the nest. Do you think he will find another mate in time for this year?
E- I'm really not sure. I just don't know enough about the biology of Cooper's Hawks to give you a good answer.
Thank you Tom. I guess the cooper's will provide an answer in the near future. I sure hope they will still nest.
Just seen one land on my neighbors house here in Englewood Ohio. Never seen one in town like that, had a look like he was lost.
